ELGAR: Violin Concerto in b, Op. 61
TCHAIKOVSKY: Symphony No. 1 in g "Winterdreams"
Nikolaj Znaider feels Elgar's Violin Concerto in his bones – literally. The violin he tucks under his chin is the same instrument used at the premiere of this gorgeous piece 100 years ago. No one plays this music like Znaider.
