Violin
Composed by Henri Wieniawski (1835-1880) and Pablo de Sarasate (1844-1908). Instrumental Solo Part and CD. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3113).

Item Number: MO.MMOCD3113

ISBN 1596151420. Soloist: Geoffrey Applegate, violin; Ensemble: Stuttgart Symphony Orchestra; Conductor: Emil Kahn.

This album contains two of the Romantic Era's neglected treasures. Henryk Wieniawski, though little known today, was a potent figure in the 19th century, an almost unparalleled virtuoso violinist and a respected composer. His D minor concerto, op. 22, was premiered in St. Petersburg in 1862 and is a Romantic-era treasure. Pablo de Sarasate's 'Zigeunerweisen' ('Gypsy ways') is a wonderful fantasia on Romany themes composed in 1878. Both of these concerti are wonderful and often overlooked. But take our advice and discover them - they will not disappoint!

Contains a printed solo part and a compact disc featuring both concerti in split-channel stereo with the violinist on the right channel; then again in a stereo accompaniment version minus the solo violin part.

  • February 28, 2008 Great pieces - stupid marketing though

    Both of these pieces are absolutely astounding - Mr. Applegate isn't too bad either (I would still recommend looking at other violinists' recordings). As for the marketing... umm wow -.- Both of these pieces are FAR from 'neglected treasures' - they're very common repertoire. And Wieniawski is not "little known today...

    ", every decent violinist on the planet knows at last one piece by this blow-away composer! Very few people are foolish enough to "overlook" these pieces - i HIGHLY suggest you consider these beauties (:
