Two famous violinists who were famous after World War II were Zino Francescatti and Henryk Szering. Francescatti was famous for his recordings of Paganini and other Romantic period concertos. Szeryng was renowned for his recordings of Bach's unaccompanied Sonatas and Partitas.

On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will hear samples of their virtuosity.
