От издателя об этом Audio CD:
Although Schuman wrote his Violin Concerto in the 1950s, it seems very much at home in today's world. Loud, abrasive, aggressive, it is punctuated by deafening crashes; the opening sets the stage with a solo that leaps back and forth with dizzying speed and momentum. The violinist seems to spend a lot of time competing with the percussion, but the second theme is poetic and tender, giving the violin a chance to do what it does best: sing. It also gets to converse with the orchestral soloists; indeed, the orchestra is an equal partner rather than an accompanying group. The second of the two movements, oddly titled "Introduzione," includes a rhythmically pungent, witty, charming Scherzo, and a long orchestral fugue, as well as more singing sections and more bangs and crashes. The solo part is fiendishly difficult, with runs at top speed, stratospheric passages, double and triple stops, and one long and one short cadenza.
