Description: For collectors who want every piece of unusual Schumanniana, we offer two claimed first recordings: transcriptions for violin and orchestra of piano pieces - the Joachim done in 1861 and the Rudorff published in 1877. The violin version of the cello concerto is rare but not unrecorded (this is not the odd Shostakovich re-orchestration which Gidon Kremer recorded decades ago on DG!).
