Chorale Preludes, Op.122
Concerto for violin and string orchestra No. 2 "Four Serious Songs"
String Quartet No. 1, Kreutzer Sonata
Violin Concerto in D minor
Explosive and unpredictable! It quickly becomes apparent when you hear Moldovan violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja perform that there is only one thing of importance to her: the music. In Patricia’s debut directing Britten Sinfonia she performs a distinctly Eastern European flavoured programme including Bartók’s Romanian folk melodies, string arrangements of Brahms and Janáček masterpieces and Tigran Mansurian’s violin concerto inspired by the same biblical texts used by Brahms for his four serious songs.
