Joseph Szigeti in Edinburg, Virginia - 1947

from With strings attached- Reminiscences and reflections, 2nd edition, enlarged, page 358:

The rediscovery of Fournier’s immense talent when we started rehearsing for the first Edinburgh Festival (1947) was a revelation to me. I had last heard him in the middle 1930’s and was now tremendously impressed by the Apollonian beauty and poise that his playing had acquired in the intervening years.
