PROKOFIEV Violin Concerto No. 1 (1917) No. 2 (1935) SHOSTAKOVICH Violin Concerto No. 1 (1948) No. 2. (1967)  Dmitry Sitkovetsky (violin)

LSO/Sir Colin Davis (Prokofiev)
BBCSO/Andrew Davis (Shostakovich)

This 2-CD set contains the EMI/Virgin Classics (CD Album/s(x2): 5616332) masterful performances by Dmitry Sitkovetsky of the Prokofiev and Shostakovich Violin Concertos. Sitkovetsky became a sensation for his bestselling arrangement for string orchestra of Bach's Goldberg Variations. But it is this 2-CD set, his best as a performer, which shows the range of his skill and the depth of his art as a violin virtuoso. His affinity for the material, both emotionally and intellectualy, is very strong, and it particularly shows in the Shostakovich Violin Concerto 1, by far the best performance committed to disk (far superior to Vengerov's). The Penguin Guide of Classical Music gave it a "rossette," indicating just how special this performance is; Gramophone and other reviewers have praised it just as highly.
