Notes & Reviews:

In this American Journey, violinist Arnold Steinhardt performs some of his favorite twentieth-century works for violin. From the "indigenous", Negro spiritual nature of the African-American Henry Thacker Burleigh's 'Southland Sketches', to the Latin-American dances forming the second half of the program. This recital also includes Leonard Bernstein's Sonata for 'Violin and Piano', composed at the age of 21.
