Catalogue Number: 05K058
Description: All three of these works, composed between 1874 and 1878, were written for Sarasate and since the earliest, the concerto, a work completely free of any folk elements or program - just very attractive absolute music in the finest Romantic concerto vein - is still very much in the shade of the Symphonie espagnole, we offer this new recording of it. The short Norwegian work could do with a bit more recognition as well... Jean-Jacques Kantorow (violin), Granada City Orchestra; Kees Bakels.
