Notes & Reviews:

Bartok's two Violin Concertos are among the 20th century's masterpieces for the instrument. Completed when he was a youthful 27, the first is a tender work, which was never performed in his lifetime. His Second Concerto was written thirty years after the first. It is a frequently turbulent score yet contains one of the most exquisitely slow movements in the violin repertoire.
