RODOLPHE KREUTZER (1766-1831): Violin Concertos No. 15 in A, No. 18 in E Minor and No. 19 in D Minor.
Catalogue Number: 03L040
Reference: 777 188
Description: These are full-scale late Classical concertos with large first movements (with a lot of minor key drama in 18 and 19), intermezzo-like short slow movements and catch rondo finales. All 19 of Kreutzer's concertos were written between 1784 and 1810, so these are from his latest, most mature period and help, along with this violinist's other cpo recordings of concerti by Lipinsky and Rode, to fill out the history of the Classical violin concerto.
