Notes and Editorial Reviews

Eduard Hanslick, the redoubtable critic of his time, found few propitious words to say at the occasion of the world premiere of Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto. According to him, the violin was no longer being played but "tousled, fleeced and dyed blue". Fortunately, he was nonetheless unable to hinder the triumphal march of Tchaikovsky's only violin concerto. Antonín Dvorák composed his Romance for Violin and Orchestra in F minor, Op. 11 sometime between September 1873 and early December 1877. The work received its premiere on 9 December 1877 in Prague. It was dedicated to the Czech virtuoso violinist František Ondricek, "his dear friend", himself also a composer and the soloist at the premiere of Read more Dvorák's Violin Concerto several years later. OehmsClassics is delighted to be again releasing an album with the exceptional Austrian violin virtuoso Benjamin Schmid after a long pause. Read less
