Violin Concerto / Cappriccio Italien - Tchaikovsky (concerto inspired by Lalo symphony - 139028)

£6.99

Product description

(featuring The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by the one-and-only Herbert von Karajan, and the violinist Christian Ferras in Mid-Sixties recordings)

It was in early 1878, in the Swiss town of Clarens, that Pyotr Tchaikovsky (1840-93) set to work on his one and only Violin Concerto. Iosif Kotek, the violinist and felllow Russian composer, had accompanied Pyotr to the resort, and the pair set about playing through a great deal of music.

There was one piece, in particular, that excited Tchaikovsky, namely Frenchman Edouard Lalo's recently published, "Symphonie espagnole". Several days later, the Russian started work on his own Violin Concerto, drawing inspiration from what he described as the "freshness, lightness and piquant rhythms" of Lalo's work.

Some eight or nine days later, Pyotr's sparkling Violin Concerto was complete.
Side One : Concerto for Violin & Orchestra in D major Op.35, by Tchaikovsky :-
1) I Allegro moderato 2) II Canzonetta : Andante.
Side Two : 1) III Finale : Allegro vivacissimo.

Pyotr Tchaikovsky was inspired to compose his "Cappriccio Italien" - a fantasy on Italian folk songs -, by the impressions he received at carnival time in Rome, during the winter of 1880.
Side Two : 2) Cappriccio Italien Op.45, by Tchaikovsky.

Records graded visually to RRPG grades (record/sleeve) EX/EX-.
