- Violin Concerto No.1 in G minor, Op. 26
- Violin Concerto in B minor, Op. 61
The 16-year-old Yehudi Menuhin's famous 1932 recording of the Elgar Violin Concerto remains the most compelling and authoritative ever made, with the composer lending alternately noble and mercurial support for "that marvelous boy." Less well-known is Menuhin's version of the Bruch G minor Concerto, recorded the year before. Like the Elgar, it is an astoundingly mature and accomplished interpretation by one of the most prodigious talents history has known. Mark Obert-Thorn's transfers are the most realistic and lifelike ever, easily making this the preferred version, regardless of price.
