Description: First Commercial Recording... Anyone know what that means? Written for a young Canadian violinist in 1907-08, it was premiered by her in 1909 and considered lost until discovered in her archive in 2015, it’s not a big Romantic concerto but it is a very attractive one: 22 minutes in three movements with tasty elements of Hardanger fiddle music in all of them and the finale based on halling rhythms; plenty of opportunities for soloistic athleticism too. Henning Kraggerud (violin), Malmö Symphony Orchestra; Bjarte Engeset.
