Bruch’s Concerto No.1 is a fiery, demanding treasure that scales the highest peaks and lowest reaches.

Laced with sudden leaps, there’s a charming volley of call and response in the Prelude. Its lavish tune and violin virtuosity assures its future as a repertoire staple. Walton’s remarkable First Symphony is volcanic in its driven stirring intensity, with a finale that is herculean in scale. What a concert!
