Misha Keylin here complete his valuable set of the Vieuxtemps Concertos wit ha fine, fully competitive version of the popular No. 5, and he also gives première recording of Nos. 6 and 7. They belong to the last year of the composer’s life and show no diminution of his melodic facility. The G major is in four movements, has a charming Intermezzo siciliano before the sparkling Alleretto Rondo finale. Keylin is a very persuasive advocate, equally at home and accomplished in the A minor Concerto, with its Mélancholie central movement and dashing closing Allegro vivo. He plays a 1715 Stradivarius, and his elegantly warm lyricism shows its timbre off to seductive effect. The recording is very good, too.
