Music Minus One Violin: Wieniawski Violin Concerto No. 2 in D minor, op. 22; Sarasate Zigeunerweisen ('Gypsy Ways'), op. 20 (Book & CD) - Music Minus One
Perform timeless Violin works with a full orchestra! Perfect for practice, rehearsal, auditions, contest solos, performances, and more! 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! <P>Contains a printed score 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. <P>MMO CD 3113 <BR>Performed by Geoffrey Applegate, violin <BR>Accompaniment: Stuttgart Symphony Orchestra <BR>Conductor: Emil Kahn

Music Minus One Violin: Wieniawski Violin Concerto No.1 in F# Minor, Op. 14 (sheet music and 2CD set) - Music Minus One
Listen to the soloist-then play the selections yourself. Perfect for performance, practice, auditions and for everyday listening pleasure!The great composer/virtuoso Henryk Wieniawski wrote this concerto in 1853, at the age of 18. But it reflects an astounding musical maturity. In particular, this concerto features a grand, theatrical air with plenty of pathos and poetry, and magnificent multiple-stopping for the solo instrument. This was a common part of the repertoire until his own second concerto supplanted it. Conventional only in its form, it is extremely innovative in its musical and technical materials, with a beautiful and heroic main theme. The second movement, a short Larghetto, is a simple yet exquisite musical prayer, demanding exquisite musical tone. The Rondo movement is an energetic movement, filled with extremely useful exercises in wrist movement and the “martelé” stroke. All in all, a majestic example of the Romantic concerto and a very valuable learning tool for the advancing player. Here, finally, in a brand new digital recording is this Romantic-era treasure, for your own discovery. This deluxe 2CD set includes a slow-tempo practice version to help you as you learn the piece.
