Description: The flowering of the French violin school arrived with Rode's thirteen concertos and this third volume (of five) brings us the youthful First of c.1794, a big, 32-minute work in the style of and dedicated to his teacher Viotti; the Fifth (c.1801) notable for its pastoral Siciliano slow movement and the Ninth, dating from his four-year stay in Russia (1804-08). Pure joy, Vol. 3, for violin and Classical concerto collectors. Friedemann Eichhorn (violin), Jena Philharmonic Orchestra; Nicholás Pasquet.
