20th Century Violin Concertos

For concert violinists, the great violin concertos of the 19th century may be the bread and butter repertory, but in the 20th century, the period from 1930 to 1950 saw the composition of many fine violin concertos, and the soloists who first played these concertos often also made the premier recordings of these works. There were, in that period, new concertos by Serge Prokofiev, Samuel Barber, and Bela Bartok, and we'll sample some of those recordings.
