Notes & Reviews:

'The Times' called it a "superbly played concert." Ivan Zenaty and the BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Jiri Belohlavek performed Foerster's first violin concerto at London's Barbican Hall in December, 2007. The concerto was written at the urging of Czech violin virtuoso Jan Kubelik, the dedicatee of the work, and the soloist who premiered it in Chicago in 1910. The second concerto, recorded in the studio, is a somewhat neglected part of the solo repertoire, not being a work for the presentation of superficial violin virtuosity. Zenaty, however, succeeds in delving beneath the piece's surface and uncovering its introverted beauty for the audience.
