Mission of Life
Nikolai Badinski’s Violin Concerto No. 2 will receive its world première almost 40 years after its composition. The Violin Concerto, which is part of a trilogy and subtitled Mission of life …, was lost when the composer had to escape from East to West Berlin in 1976. The score resurfaced only many years after the German Unification of 1990.
