Product Description


technical comment

  • "One of the most intimate works of this century", wrote the British musicologist Sir Donald Tovey of Elgar's Violin Concerto in B Minor.
    Bach's Violin Concerto in A Minor, probably written in 1720, is restrained - with a gradual development of tension through the contrast between the solo part and the orchestral accompaniment.

    Israeli-born Pinchas Zukerman has kept his face and music before the public for more than four decades with his wide range of activities: he is a world-class violinist, violist, conductor and administrator. He has recently announced his decision to step down as music director of Ottawa's National Arts Center Orchestra. He remains as chief guest conductor at the RPO.
