Henryk Szeryng (1918-1988) spoke eight languages. As an "ambassador of goodwill," he traveled to his concerts around the world with a diplomatic passport issued to him by the Mexican state after Szeryng became a naturalized citizen in 1946. He was impressed by Mexico's willingness to help many of his Polish compatriots fleeing the German occupiers. From his violin collection, worth many millions, he later gave away a Stradivarius and a Guarneri to Mexico and to Israel. During World War II Szeryng was a liaison officer and interpreter of the exiled Polish prime minister Sikorski, who had found asylum in France. His career as a violin virtuoso began with studies with Flesch in Berlin and Boulanger in Paris and a performance of Beethoven's Concerto op. 61 under Bruno Walter in Warsaw. It took him to all the music capitals of the world and ended abruptly with his unexpected death in Kassel in 1988. His wide-ranging repertoire, which included many works dedicated to him by contemporary composers, is documented in this 10-CD box with exemplary interpretations.
