    "This is a collection of typical encore pieces - and even some of these are old- fashioned for such purposes - but no matter what Erica Morini does, she does with care and impeccable artistic taste. Certainly, there is much love lavished on the performances on this disk, and the violinist's warm, smooth tone, as well as that of her expert accompanist, has been most faithfully preserved on exceptionally quiet record surfaces." - High Fidelity

    Erica Morini (1904 - 1995) played the 1727 "Davidov" Stradivarius violin, named for the Russian cellist Karl Davydov, that her father had purchased for her in Paris in 1924.

    The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the LP and the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.

    This Analogphonic record was mastered from the original Deutsche Grammophon master tapes by Maarten De Boer, using pure analogue audiophile equipment, cut at Emil Berliner Studio Berlin, and pressed at Pallas GmbH in Germany.
