This work has been a classic from the moment Jascha Heifitz premiered it in 1947, and is as revered today as virtually any other concerted work for the violin. Korngold was such a child prodigy that he was hailed as the “Mozart of the 20th Century.” And while he was known for many years primarily for his great film compositions, his operas and concert works are also recognized, especially in recent years, for their genius. This concerto uses themes from four of Korngold’s great films and it is German Late Romanticism at its most splendid. For advanced players or those who love a challenge! This 2CD set includes a special slow-tempo practice version of the accompaniments for your use as you learn the concerto.
Includes a newly-engraved edition of the concerto on high-quality ivory paper, edited and with performance notes by Ms. Kouzmanova: and a digital stereo compact disc featuring a complete performance of the concerto with orchestra and soloist, followed by a second performance minus you, the soloist: plus a second compact disc containing a full-speed version of the complete concerto followed by a special -20% slow-tempo version of the accompaniment for practice purposes. The recording is thoroughly indexed for your practice and performance convenience.
