Noted text on Download webpage: “The boxy, but clear recording reveals that they aren't a world class ensemble, but the responsiveness and authentic accent more than compensate. The Pantomime section is particularly flavorful! Conchita Velasquez is a vivid soloist as well. It's not quite a complete version, with four of the sixteen sections omitted.”

Review:

“...For mastery in legato playing, go directly to the Handel Sonata in D, a long-time favorite of violinists like Nathan Milstein, who played it with more objective sang-froid. Enescu squeezes every emotional nuance from the Adagio’s opening line, more than twenty violinists could extract from the entire piece. His vibrato and arched phrasing, the nuanced inflection in the rhythm, each contributes to a musically gratifying experience, regardless of the historical “authenticity” of edition or style. The ensuingAllegro, played a tad marcato, enjoys a lovely patina, a charming smoothness of delivery, especially when the cantilena breaks forth. A piquant Larghetto, a chorale really, leads to an enchanting French gigue, Allegro, with suave trills and feathery upper notes - a charmer for posterity...”

Review: [From Gramophone Magazine; November 1928 : Page 14]

“...The Massenet suite is played with the kind of hard brilliance we associate with French military hands. The tone is too much of a muchness—that is, the instruments don't get their individual timbre over to us. The strings assert when they might persuade. The Angelus is the best done, to my mind. There is a good deal to please many listeners here, and the music is of course very popular...”

“...In a contemporary review published in May 1931, C. Henry Warren wrote, ‘I confess I had for so long taken these Songs without Words for granted that I had almost forgotten how charming some of them were. They were dead bones; but Friedman has blown new life into them for me – as I am sure he will do for many others. He plays them brilliantly; and the whole set is a model of pianoforte recording’...”
