Kreisler: Violin Concerto in One Movement (after Paganini) (16:10)
Laurent Korcia, violin; Paris Chamber Orchestra / Jean-Jacques Kantorow
Stretching across the centuries and transcending styles, the transcriptions written by Ysaÿe and Kreisler in homage to Paganini, their forebear, forge a link among these three illustrious violinist/composers. Laurent Korcia won the Paganini competition at the age of eighteen, during which he played on one of Paganini’s violins. Now, Korcia pays tribute to the great master with a program of transcriptions.
