This program of Eastern European inspiration showcases violinist Christian Tetzlaff performing Brahms’ celebrated Violin Concerto with all the dazzling technical bravura and exhilarating melodic surges one could desire. French conductor Lionel Bringuier completes the tableau with his reading of works by two great Hungarian masters: Liszt’s diabolical Mephisto Waltz and Kodály’s Dances of Galánta, which both draw on Romani folklore.
Mephisto Waltz no. 1, “Der Tanz in der Dorfschenke” [The Dance in the Village Inn], S. 514
Violin Concerto in D major, op. 77
Dances of Galánta
