Rabin, Sir Eugene Goossens, Philharmonia Orchestra, The,Paganini, Wieniawski – Paganini Concerto No. 1 In D Major - Wieniawski Concerto No.2 In D Minor
The Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Sir Eugene Goossens. "Young Rabin dashed off the Paganini First Concerto in D Major with pyrotechnics so dazzling as to inspire one spectator to call out loudly: 'We have a second Paganini God bless you.'" So wrote Eugene Moore in the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin, regarding Michael Rabin's performance at Robin Hood Dell. Such admiration has been gracing the ears of Michael Rabin ever since he made his recital debut at Carnegie Hall in 1950. The First Movement alternates between measure of diabolical difficulty, really joyous in their exhibitionism, and passages which are not only lyrical but tender. Many of Paganini's trademarks are to be found here: the running consecutive double stops, the artificial harmonies, the flying staccati, the incredible scuttling up and down the fingerboard.
Three "Warlock" the violin, three fingers acrobats, three extreme climbers, three Gratwanderer on a plate: "Teufelsgeiger" Niccolò Paganini (1782-1840), his heir Henri Wieniawski (1835-1880) and her performer who at the time of receiving 24-year old Michael Rabin. as different as their music, so have the fabled, restless Paganini and manageable, quieter water Wieniawski but several things in common: composed attributed Both virtuosos exclusively for themselves, so pieces and concertos for violin, both have revolutionized the violin, and both have really added to their music and play their contemporaries in a trance.
in Paganini's first violin concerto first dive on those famous flageolet double handles with which he were able to play in the finest, extremely high tones, on His audience made such an impression that rumors about Paganini's covenant with the devil arose. Explain you could its origin at the time not.
Wieniawski's D minor Concerto dissolves in every respect the motto of the composers ". You have to take risks" incomparably beautiful crying violin in the romance to the final of the fiery gypsy dance from depths To high altitude. And the young Michael Rabin is obviously playing it - a listening pleasure of three.
