ERNÖ VON DOHNÁNYI (1877-1960): Violin Concertos No. 1 in D Minor, Op. 27 & No. 2 in C Minor, Op. 43.
Catalogue Number: 05J065
Description: These concertos bring much warm, Straussian and Brahmsian music to the collector of late Romantic music. The first concerto, from 1915, has structual affinities with Brahms\' Symphony No. 1 and what sounds like a motif quoted from Strauss\' Salomé. The second concerto, from 1950, brings solo writing of Kreislerian excitement and adds a dash of Reger to the mix as well. Michael Ludwig (violin), Royal Scottish National Orchestra; JoAnn Falletta.
