Dvorak Violin Concerto - BBC Radio 3 Building a Library


01 September 2006
BBC Radio 3 Building a Library
Anthony Burton

Joseph Swensen plays smoothly amid unusually transparent textures, thanks to the relatively small size of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Swensen's dual role as a soloist and director, and Linn's excellent recording (the only one so far to include an SACD option).
