THÉODORE DUBOIS (1837-1924): Violin Concerto in D Minor, Violin Sonata, Ballad for Violin and Piano (Lukas Maria Kuen [piano]).
Catalogue Number: 11U004
Reference: 777 932-2
Description: We’ve had more than a dozen Dubois releases in the last ten years or so and, though this one duplicates the two violin-and-piano pieces which were in a volume of Atma’s chamber music series of the mid 00’s, it gives us the first CD recording available here of the half-hour-long concerto of 1896, classically proportioned and structured, full of lovely melody and as comfortably conservative as anything written fifty years earlier. A real guilty pleasure! Ingolf Turban (violin), Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrücken Kaiserslautern; Raoul Grüneis.
