Kyril Kondrashin conducts the Philharmonia Orchestra for this recording of Lalo's Symphonie Espagnole and Tchaikovsky's Serenade Melancolique.
The EMI recording dates from 1960 and is of very good quality, brilliant and with plenty of body and a realistic portrayal of the soloist. Violinist Leonid Kogan's assurance and sensibility throughout are impressive, and the finale has a fine sparkle.
