Description: The final volume in this series presents one of Rode’s most inspired pieces, the Violin Concerto No. 11, lyrically expressive and full of good-humored zest. No. 12 is notable for the ingenious ways in which, through trills, staccato, spiccato and cadenzas, Rode heightens the music’s bravura. Friedemann Eichhorn (violin), Jena Philharmonic Orchestra; Nicolás Pasquet.
