Bela Bartok's Second Violin Concerto has become such a famous work in the violin repertoire that its reputation often overshadows that of the First concerto, which was written thirty years before and was not discovered until after Bartok's death. On this new recording from Harmonia Mundi, violinist Isabelle Faust has taken the time to go back and examine numerous scores of this earlier work; a piece that was inspired by Bartok's romance with a young violinist. Accompanied by the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra (under the capable baton of Daniel Harding), Faust's exquisite playing sheds new light on these two concerti by one of the most famous composers of the twentieth century.

Reviews
The Violin Concerto No. 2 is a masterpiece given its head by Faust, the captivating, rhapsodic opening passage heralding a remarkable performance.
