The new Four seasons by Antonio Vivaldi( )

In 1989 Nigel Kennedy made his breakthrough recording of Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons.' In his sleeve notes to that famous release, Kennedy stressed that he had rejected the idea of playing Vivaldi's suite of violin concertos in either the "authentic" fashion, using period instruments, or in the more florid "romantic" style. He explained that his objective was to use "every kind of technique I know" to communicate his feeling for the music to his listeners. He didn't believe that The Four Seasons was confined to any particular point in time, because it "has far more to offer than mere historical interest." Now, in 2015, Kennedy returns with a completely fresh take on 'The Four Seasons, ' but while the music sounds hugely different, his creative attitude is the same. Once again he has set out to prove that 'The Four Seasons' can be music for all time, and in his opinion there's no reason why Vivaldi's masterpiece shouldn't be opened up to embrace developments in musical instrument technology, or even new musical styles undreamt of in Vivaldi's 18th century world. Any forward-looking composer, Kennedy reasons, would have been delighted to exploit the potential of more expressive or sophisticated instrumentation if it had been available to him
Violin concerto by Johannes Brahms( )

22 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in 5 languages and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brahms' Violinkonzert ist der Inbegriff für romantisches Violinkonzert und eines der bekanntesten Violinkonzerte überhaupt. Auch sein Doppelkonzert für Violine, Violoncello und Orchester ist ein Meisterwerk, das seinesgleichen sucht. Beide Werke entstanden für den Geiger Joseph Joachim, der sie auch zur Uraufführung brachte. - Der Geigerin Julia Fischer, deren bisherige Einspielungen mit Werken von Bach, Mozart, Tschaikowski u.a. auch international hoch gelobt und mit CD-Preisen nahezu überschüttet wurden, steht im Doppelkonzert der Cellist Daniel Müller-Schott als ebenbürtiger Partner zur Seite, dazu das Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra Amsterdam unter Yakov Kreizberg, mit dem Julia Fischer schon ihre früheren Konzerteinspielungen aufgenommen hat - eine herausragende Aufnahme, noch dazu in SACD-Qualität
