Dvorak: Violin Concerto
To mark the centenary of the death of Antonin Dvorak, Stephen Johnson takes apart the composer's often neglected Violin Concerto arguing that this really is a Cinderella piece - highly original and very beautiful. The Concerto is performed by Jack Liebeck with the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by Matthew Rowe.
