Synopsis

Product Description
Hailed as 'the Jascha Heifetz of our day' (The Globe and Mail, Canada), the violinist James Ehnes is widely considered one of the most dynamic and exciting performers in classical music, appearing regularly with the world's finest orchestras and conductors. Accompanied here by the BBC Philharmonic under Gianandrea Noseda, Ehnes is the soloist in Bartok's two violin concertos in which he plays the 'Marsick' Stradivarius of 1715, as well as in the viola concerto, performing on the 'Rolla' Giuseppe Guadagnini viola of 1793, on loan from the Fulton Collection.

James Ehnes said of this disc: 'These three concertos are among the most striking examples of Bartok's early, middle, and late periods, each showing a very different side of one of the great musical voices of all time; they are among my very favourite pieces to perform'.
