The Violin Concerto on Record

Alexander Machnovsky is an avid devotee of the violin concerto and its recorded history.

He provides us with music reviews as the spirit moves him.

At last I have my ideal violin. I turned down 14 instruments which came from all around the country, including an original cremonese violin, which I just couldn't convince myself to like.
