Notes and Editorial Reviews

Leonard Bernstein's Sérénade (1954) is a violin concerto in all but name; the Violin concerto (1924) by Kurt Weill sets the violin against an orchestral wind section. Originality comes to the fore in these fascinating major works, in which two very provocative composers also show their longing for humanism in a century makred by two world wars.
