Tome Mancev (*1950): Violin concerto (1985)
« on: December 19, 2017, 12:16:01 AM »
The Macedonian composer Tome Mancev (*1950) composed his Violin concerto op.22 in 1985. It was premiered in 1986 by the Macedonian Philharmonic Orchestra under Igor Dzadrov and violinist Ratka Dimitrova. The full score only existed in manuscript, but I received the request to typeset and publish the score. Now my work is finished and one can download the full score from my website free of charge:
