BRAHMS: Violin Concerto

SHOSTAKOVICH: Symphony No. 15

DVORAK: The Wild Dove, Op. 110
Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, conductor
Dvorak: Symphony No7; Wild Dove
Warner 21278

Though critics initally called it a fight between the violin and the orchestra, Brahms' Violin Concerto has proven to be one of the most beautiful - if challenging - works in the violinist's repertoire.

Produced in partnership with Radio Netherlands Worldwide Raymond L of Baldwinsville, NY was this week's winner and correctly id'd Jeremy Denk's encore as Bach's Gigue from his Partita No. 4. Congratulations, Raymond!
