3 CD 1951-2001 Highlights

The Queen Elisabeth Competition of Belgium was launched in 1951. It quickly became one of the most famous competitions in the world and has been won by such renowned virtuosos as Fleisher, Ashkenazy, Laredo and Repin. When Queen Elisabeth of Belgium agreed to be the patron of the musical competition created in 1951, she gave a new lease of life to the Ysaÿe competitions held in Brussels in 1937 and 1938, which had been won by the great Soviet virtuosos David Oistrakh and Emil Guilels. But could she have imagined that, fifty years on, this competition would still be one of the most prestigious of the international competitions that appeared in their hundreds after the Second World War?

The 3 CD box set Highlights collects some of the greatest moments of the Competition.
