Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

In 1921 Max Reger was the most played composer in Arnold Schoenberg's Vienna Society for Private Musical Performances. On October 9, 1920 an arrangement of Reger's Romantic Suite, Op. 125 by Schoenberg and the violinist Rudolf Kolisch was performed for the first time. Among further planned projects were arrangements of his Hiller Variations, Op. 100 and the Violin Concerto, Op. 101. While the Hiller Variations project remained unrealized, their version of the Violin Concerto had its premiere in Vienna in March 1922. However, the whereabouts of this arrangement remained subsequently unknown until 1986, when it resurfaced as part of Kolisch's estate, acquired that year by the Houghton Library of Harvard University. Elena Denisova is one of the outstanding figures of the modern Russian violin school. This highly acclaimed performer was born in Moscow and began lessons at age four before going on to study at the Moscow State Conservatory. Concert tours have brought her to many European countries with great success. In 1992 she co-founded the Collegium Musicum Carinthia, an ensemble that performs music from the Baroque era up to the present day. Thanks to them, you now have a chance to hear a rare, alternate performance of a work that is not really heard that often even in its original form!
