Alfredo Campoli (Born 20 October 1906 – Died 27 March 1991) was an Italian-born British violinist, often known simply as Campoli. He was noted for the beauty of the tone he produced from the violin. In Groups: Alfredo Campoli And His Salon Orchestra, The Alfredo Campoli Trio. Variations: Viewing All Alfredo Campoli.
ALFREDO CAMPOLI plays the famous romantic violin concerto. nd the BLISS. Concertos by Beethoven, Bliss, Bruch, Elgar, Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky. Throughout this set the synergy between Decca’s famed ‘Full Frequency Range Recording’ and Campoli’s lush/plush sweet tone reaps real riches. Campoli must have been more than satisfied with the results. The release of these three discs (originally released separately in 1994/1995) as a set is timely and coincides with the publication later this year (1999) of the Ashgate/Scolar biography of this artist - the people’s violinist if ever there was one.
Campoli made these recordings of Baroque sonatas between 1948 and 1955, at a time when virtues of rich, full-bodied tone and smoothly expressive phrasing were prized in music of all periods: indeed, Decca originally issued the D minor Solo Partita of Bach in 1951 on one side of an LP with Bruch’s G minor concerto on the other. All the recordings in this series of ‘Alfredo Campoli: The Bel Canto Violin’ have been given new remasterings from original Decca sources. Invaluable context on both artist and repertoire is provided by new booklet essays from Campoli’s biographer David Tunley. Track listing, artists.
