Joseph Szigeti - the 1900's
A glance at some of the pages showed me that here indeed was a work [Ysaÿe G minor Sonata] in the making that would permit later generations to reconstruct a style of playing of which the inadequate Ysaÿe recordings give us barely a hint. These recordings were made when he was past his prime, the repertory he drew upon was anything but representative, and the recording techniques were, of course, still primitive.
