  • Cat. no. 11442


The style of the „Concerto” was conditioned, on the one hand, by the peculiar character of the genre and allusion to certain established traditional forms of development; and on the other, by general compositional ideas arising from Neoromantic aesthetic assumptions. A fact of great importance, particularly from the standpoint of the solo part’s texture, was that the composer knew the violin from personal experience. This can be seen in the eloquently rich use of its technical and expressive capabilities: from the confident use of complex, but always ‘violonistic’ double stops, through broad application and coloristic variation of registers, to the finesse of the passagework in the finale. [Adam Walaciński]
