About

The entirety of Tchaikovsky’s repertoire for solo violin, including his only concerto for the instrument, was written during a period of remarkable turbulence between 1875 and 1878. His recent marriage to Antonia Milyukova had plunged the composer into nearly-suicidal depression, and for a brief time his preferred method of expression became an instrument he had generally shunned early in his career. The most notable product of this anguish was Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto in D, a work that swings widely between extremes as wide as Russian gypsy music and Western European-influenced Romanticism, and was deemed unplayable at the time of its premiere.

The fourth collaboration between Julia Fischer and Russian conductor Yakov Kreizberg, and their second to feature the Russian National Orchestra.

Also includes the Valse–Scherzo, another supposedly unplayable piece that has since attracted considerable interest from violinists.

In Souvenir d’un lieu cher, the final composition on the album, Kreizberg takes a seat at the piano to join Fischer in an intimate duet brimming with nostalgia

Previously released on CD, this acclaimed album is released here for the first time in a highly collectible LP version.
