DVOŘÁK:

Violin Concerto, Gershwin: An American in Paris

Liza Ferschtman (violin)

Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra / Mario Venzago (conductor)

Violin Concerto in A minor, op. 53 (1879)

1. Allegro

2. Adagio

3. Finale. Allegro giocoso, ma non troppo

4. George Gershwin: An American in Paris (1928)

Anton Dvořák’s much loved Violin Concerto is performed on this new hybrid SACD by the outstanding young soloist Liza Ferschtman. The disc also includes George Gershwin’s An American in Paris, and the orchestra in both works is the Netherlands Philharmonic. The conductor is Jan Willem de Vriend.

Violinist Liza Ferschtman has performed with all the major Dutch orchestras, including the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Residentie Orchestra, and the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, alongside conductors such as Leonard Slatkin, Jaap van Zweden, and Thierry Fischer. She released her debut recording for Challenge Classics in 2007 with music for violin and piano by Beethoven and Schubert (CC72174), and this was was followed in early 2010 by a disc devoted to the solo violin music of Bach and Ysayë (CC72351). In 2010 she made a critically acclaimed recording of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto with the Netherlands Philharmonic and conductor Jan Willem de Vriend (CC72384).

The premiere of Anton Dvořák’s Violin Concerto took place in Prague on 14 October 1883, and a month later it was performed in Vienna by the Vienna Philharmonic conducted by Hans Richte, where the soloist was supposed to be the great Joseph Joachim, however it seems that he declined possibly because he thought the concerto's form too free for his liking. George Gershwin’s symphonic poem An American in Paris is written in the form of a free rhapsody for orchestra. Although he had not meant it as programme music and certainly not as an autobiographic work, it clearly shows features of both.
