Violin Concerto, Op. 35 in D Major - Music Minus One by Erich Wolfgang Korngold (1897-1957). For violin. 20th Century and Play Along. Difficulty: medium-difficult. Sheet music and accompaniment CD. Solo part, standard notation and performance notes. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3166).
ISBN 1596151951. With solo part, standard notation and performance notes. 20th Century and Play Along. 9x12 inches.
This work has been a classic from the moment Jascha Heifitz premiered it in 1947, and is as revered today as virtually any other concerted work for the violin. Korngold was such a child prodigy that he was hailed as the "Mozart of the 20th Century." And while he was known for many years primarily for his great film compositions, his operas and concert works are also recognized, especially in recent years, for their genius. This concerto uses themes from four of Korngold's great films and it is German Late Romanticism at its most splendid. For advanced players or those who love a challenge! This 2CD set includes a newly-engraved edition of the solo part on high-quality ivory paper, edited and with performance notes by Ms. Kouzmanova; a digital stereo compact disc featuring a complete performance of the concerto with orchestra and soloist, followed by a second performance minus you, the soloist; plus a second compact disc containing a full-speed version of the complete concerto followed by a special -20% slow-tempo version of the accompaniment for practice purposes. The recording is thoroughly indexed for your practice and performance convenience. Conductor: Nayden Todorov. Soloist: Bojidara Kouzmanova, violin. Ensemble: Plovdiv Philharmonic Orchestra.

Good music, Not-so-good edition
There were a few things that dissappointed me. First is that there is no piano score, you just get the solo part and the CD. In the solo part, there are three or four bad page turns (for ex., in the 3rd movt, there are a bunch of measures rest,...
