By uniting the virtuosity of the French violin school of Viotti, Kreutzer and Rode to the seriousness, perfection of form and developmental skills of the Viennese classical school of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, Louis Spohr imbued his violin concertos with both formal mastery and a delightfully nonchalant elegance.
Composed between 1808 and 1825, these lyrical early Romantic concertos showcase Spohr’s fine taste and impeccable craftsmanship, blending intensity of feeling with flights of fancy and spontaneity with tenderness, to achieve an inimitable gracefulness.
