This is quite an opening statement – virtuosity in spades in all three works! Vivaldi’s customary brilliance bookends one of his most haunting slow movements, while Hungarian swagger meets jazz in the Bartok – it was written for Benny Goodman – and this little-known masterpiece by the young Mendelssohn will provide the closing fireworks.
