  • Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 1
  • Rachmaninoff Symphony No. 3
Few musicians in the world have the skill to master Dmitri Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1. The original soloist reportedly begged the composer in rehearsal: “For God’s sake Dmitri, give me eight bars of rest, so that I can wipe the sweat off my neck!”

Thrill to the prowess of violin virtuoso Guy Braunstein as he matches his mettle to the electrifying work.


Peu de violonistes peuvent se vanter de maîtriser le Concerto pour violon no 1 de Dmitri Chostakovitch. Le premier soliste à l’avoir interprété se serait même exclamé, lors d’une répétition avec le compositeur : « De grâce, Dmitri, donne-moi huit mesures de repos pour que je puisse m’éponger le cou! »

On est transporté par les prouesses du violoniste Guy Braunstein, dont le talent est mis en valeur dans ce programme électrisant.
