Henryk Szeryng garnered worldwide acclaim for his extensive repertoire, which he performed with great skill and profound emotional expression over a career spanning more than five decades. As a tonalist and colorist, he possessed the technical command of a true master, delighting audiences with what critics described as his evident joy in playing. Unlike many of his colleagues who often wore pained expressions, Szeryng appeared captivated, smiling blissfully as he performed his favorite passages. Moreover, Szeryng was celebrated for his inclination to revive overlooked or forgotten violin works, showcasing his commitment to bringing these compositions back to the forefront of musical appreciation. While Szeryng never recorded the Glazounov Concerto for commercial release, a remarkable live performance from 1958 is included in the Meloclassic release.
