About Bruch’s Violin Concerto

The exhilarating drive of the dances from Borodin’s opera Prince Igor has thrilled listeners for more than a hundred years, and not just in the concert hall. This music’s popularity over several generations in movies, computer games, TV commercials and pop songs, not to mention the delightful musical Kismet, testifies to Borodin’s tuneful genius. Even without knowing the context of its appearance as a scene-stealing fantasy of exotic splendour within its operatic original, the Dances’ delicious vitality and rich orchestral colour makes the heart rush and the spine tingle.

A few years younger than Borodin, Max Bruch was thoroughly schooled in the German tradition through the aesthetic line of Mendelssohn and Brahms. His first concerto is a bravura showpiece for violinists that has never waned in popularity with audiences or performers.
