Scottish Chamber Orchestra
Joseph Swensen conductor/violin


Linn Records is pleased to announce the next release in the highly successful series of recordings with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and acclaimed conductor/violinst Joseph Swensen.   Having delighted us with his performances of the Brahms, Mendelssohn and Prokofiev Violin Concertos, Swensen now turns his hand to the Czech master Antonin Dvorak.

Dvorak wrote the Violin Concerto during the summer of 1879 as his reputation was fast acquiring its international dimension.   Along with a large admiring public, Dvorak now found himself in the company of such luminaries as Brahms and his violinist friend, Joseph Joachim for whom the concerto was intended.   Even by Dvorak's standards, the concerto is a richly lyrical work.
