Ginette Neveu (1919-49) was cruelly snatched from a disbelieving world decades ago, yet her name still elicits deep respect and admiration not only from those fortunate enough to have heard her in the flesh but also from a legion of admirers who came to know a supreme artist via only her recordings. Neveu's true international career was to last hardly five years, yet at the time of her death at thirty she had already won for herself an indelible, illustrious position in the annals of violin playing.
