Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto / Fischer
Label: PENTATONE CLASSICS
Format: SACD / CD Hybrid
FISCHER RUSSIAN NATIONAL ORCHESTRA KREIZBERG
The entirety of Tchaikovsky's repertoire for solo violin was written during a period of amazing turbulence between 1875 and 1878. The most notable product of this anguish was his Violin Concerto in D, a work that swings widely between extremes as wide as Russian gypsy music and Western European-influenced Romanticism. Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D provides the backbone for the album and Julia Fischer brings these works to life.
