The soloist is Josef Gingold; he is accompanied by the Ohio State University Symphony Orchestra conducted by George Hardesty in the finale of the Beethoven Violin Concerto, Op.61, recorded in 1963. The complete performance is on Enharmonic Records’ invaluable 2-CD set of performances drawn from Gingold’s own archive.
