Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
The solo pairing of his Concerto No. 5 was inspired by Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante
for violin and viola, the soloists appearing in dialogue over intricate harmonies and dense string textures. Illuminated by Peter Bruegel's painting Children's Games
, the distinctively scored Concerto No. 6 has an uninhibited lightness and transparency. Strathclyde Concerto No. 2
can be heard on Naxos 8.573017, Nos. 3 and 4 on 8.572353.
