Description: Two rarely recorded Danish concertos: Svendsen's from 1870 stresses melody in the soloist's part over virtuosity which explains its neglect. Lange-Müller's is later, from 1904, and is also much more interested in a sunny, vernal lyricism which is present throughout all three movements of a loosely-structured, rhapsodic work. Seekers of fiddle heroics and great battles between soloist and orchestra must look elsewhere; these concertos are pure beauty. Lars Bjørnkær (violin), Aarhus Symphony Orchestra; Giordano Bellincampi.
