The Violin Concerto was first performed in London in 1910 with Fritz Kreisler as the violinist. Korean violinist Dong-Suk Kang seems to have the same ardent spirit here in this fine recording! The great B minor concerto is also given justice in a uniform and well balanced recording. Adrian Leaper gives a mini-impersonation of Adrian Boult in a reading that is sympathetic but never dawdling or sentimental. Kang was a child prodigy and graduated from the Curtis Institute, arguably the toughest, most prestigious music school in the world. He plays with force, technique, and accomplished musicianship.
3) Allegro Molto
4) Overture: Cockaigne (In London Town) Op. 40
