Lionel Tertis - 1968

from My Viola and I: a complete autobiography / Lionel Tertis, page 133:

Soon after my memorable visit to Elgar’s birthplace, I listened to a most beautiful performance of his violin concerto. The soloist was Alfredo Campoli with the B.B.C. Scottish Orchestra conducted by James Loughran. Among the numerous times I have heard this wonderful work, so full of lyrical moments that stir one to the depths, this performance of Campoli’s was certainly the best I have ever heard.
