Notes & Reviews:

This album is part of a series of twenty must-have titles from the Warner Classics catalog, featuring their original and well-known iconic covers. Three highly contrasted works from 20th century Russia. Anne-Sophie Mutter is the soloist in Glazunov's richly lyrical violin concerto, first performed in 1905, and in Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No 1, dating from the time of the Revolution and a work of edgy beauty. They are complemented by Rodion Shchedrin's majestic Stihira, inspired by the Orthodox liturgy music and composed in 1987 for Mstislav Rostropovich and the National Symphony Orchestra of Washington, D.C.
