Previn Violin Concerto, Bernstein Serenade (CD)

Boston Symphony Orchestra

$16.99

Featuring conductor André Previn and violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter.

Composer-conductor André Previn, and soloist Anne-Sophie Mutter perform Previn's Violin Concerto, a Boston Symphony commission given its world premiere performances in March 2002. Written for Ms. Mutter and the BSO, Previn's concerto is both expressive and personal, inspired by a train ride in Germany, where he was born and lived as a child, and using a German children's song he knew as a small boy as the basis for the final movement.
