Great Violin Concertos
This CD gives us a collection of the four great violin concerti. Yes, there are others, by Bruch, Prokofiev, Stravinsky, Bach, and other composers. But the following are seen by most musicians as the four all-time greatest work for violin solo plus orchestra.
And Pinchas Zukerman has entertained us with his music for many years now. While he has also been a conductor, Zukerman’s commitment to his violin and his beloved viola have enabled the public to hear amazing musical interpretations. In addition, Mr. Zukerman is also a well-know teacher.
