Audio: Maud Powell playing Vieuxtemps

This is a fantastic performance from one of the great Victorian violin virtuosas, American Maud Powell (1867-1920). I still haven’t bought Karen Shaffer’s biography on her…it’s on my (ever-expanding) wish-list, though! I love the verve that Powell brings to this performance! What a stylish player.
