Violin Concertos of the 20th century. Sibelius. Prokofiev. Barber


Among the abundance and variety of concertos created in the 20th century, the violin concertos by Sibelius, Prokofiev and Barber are perhaps the most loved by both the general public and the performers themselves. Emotional, majestic and captivating Jean Sibelius Concerto is refined, elegant and romantic, where the lyrics mean no less than the grotesque. Alongside with the First Violin Concerto by Sergei Prokofiev and the extraordinarily sensual Violin Concerto by Samuel Barber it is performed by a brilliant musician Sergei Pospelov often called ''God's Fiddler'', accompanied by the Dubna Symphony Orchestra.

Conductor is the Artistic Director of the Moscow Cathedral Chamber Nikolai Khondzinsky. The Overture Finlandia by Jean Sibelius and the Tragic Overture by Johannes Brahms are performed under his baton.
