      Bartók: Violin Concerto No 2 (35:48)

      Isabelle Faust, violin; Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra / Daniel Harding

      Isabelle Faust made her Harmonia Mundi label debut in 1997 with an award-winning recording of Bartók sonatas. As she recalls in the notes for her latest release, her love for Bartók’s music comes from her studies with the Hungarian violinist Dénes Zsigmondy. “At the age of eleven,” she writes, “I was lucky
      enough to study the Sonata for solo violin with him and thus to discover Bartók’s world in a very emotional and instinctive way. In the years since
      then, Dénes Zsigmondy, his conception of music, and especially his interpretation of Bartók have formed an important component of my artistic
      career. I am now delighted to present the two violin concertos in this recording.”
