its so clear, pristine, every note stands out to me, the flow takes my mind on a trip


Im looking for something like this, but with more dynamic and speed, and intensity. I wonder if ill ever find it, maybe i should try creating it.

Sounds like a very good performance of the work.

  • You can't fool me, it's turtles all the way down!
I'm fond of the Glass Concerto.  I'll have to think about what a good follow-on would be.   Perhaps the Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 1. 

What other violin concertos are you familiar with?

How about Glass Violin Concerto No.2?

Ditto. One of my favorite Kremer recordings.

Beethoven's Violin Concerto is a work of inspired genius. It was just on the car radio...

For me, the most beautiful, ...... Prokofiev's 1st violin concerto by David Oistrakh .... especially the final movement which melts into a kind of paradise of birdsong.   I have never heard anything so unique, movng and beautiful from the violin and orchestra ....
