A selection from MMO's catalogue of violin concerti, this album contains the complete slow movements of five of the greatest violin concerti ever written. This makes a perfect introduction to the concerto repertoire. Many of these selections are suitable for the less technically advanced violinist due to their slower tempi, and serve as a way to concentrate on tone production.
Includes a high-quality printed solo part and a compact disc containing a complete version with soloist, in split-channel stereo (soloist on the right channel); then a second version in full stereo of the orchestral accompaniment, minus you, the soloist.
