Donald Macleod explores the life and work of Moritz Moszkowski.

Despite earning fame as an exceptional virtuoso pianist, Moszkowski also said wittily: 'I can play billiards, chess, dominoes and violin'. Donald examines his Violin Concerto, a full-blooded romantic work that makes great demands of the soloist.
