This CD features Adolph Busch and Rudolf Serkin performing three Beethoven violin sonatas. Recorded on 9-13 October 1951, these were the last commercial recordings ever made by this illustrious duo. Although Serkin continued performing for nearly 40 more years, Adolf Busch died the year after these recordings were made. This CD marks the first-ever release of these Beethoven sonata recordings by Busch and Serkin. Although two of the sonatas – No.1 and No.10 – originally came out on LP, the performance of the ‘Spring’ Sonata (No.5) is previously unissued and is its first-ever release in any format.
