October 2, 2016: Lyrical Delights


BARTOK Romanian Folk Dances
This is a recording made in Budapest, fascinating because the theme of the third dance (Buciumeana) is played initially by a folk musician on a Bucium – a long wooden flute (1:53). And then there’s an interlude from a folk trio before the final movement, in which they join in.

PROKOFIEV Violin Concerto no. 2
The great Janine Jensen

MOZART Symphony no. 41
The recording here may be a bit slow overall, but it’s quite interesting from a historical perspective, as it’s played on the instruments in use in Mozart’s day. You’ll see that they look – and sound – a bit different from modern instruments.
