"Eastern exoticism, French impressionism and perfumed lyricism: Polish composer Karol Szymanowski in war-torn Europe in 1916 providing ecstasy without the agony in what he called 'a new style and new type of expression for the violin'." (Andrew McGregor's BBC review) From its controversial beginnings, the Szymanowski Violin Concerto now evokes arguments only about whose performance is preferred! Its importance in modern repertoire is confirmed by its inclusion in UE's ongoing New Study Score Series. Dur.: 24'
