Virtuoso Renaud Capucon collaborates with Dennis Russell Davies and the esteemed Bruckner
Orchester Linz in this new recording of violin concertos by two of the most popular composers of
the 20th Century, Philip Glass and Leonard Bernstein. Glass's first violin concerto from 1987 is the
composer's most well known concert work having been performed and recorded by violinists like
Gidon Kremer and Robert McDuffie. Now thirty years after its composition it has become known
as a new classic of our time. The same can be said for Bernstein's luscious Serenade (after Plato's
Symposium) for solo violin, strings, harp and percussion from 1954. A concerto in all but name, it
has become one of Bernstein's best known and most loved works for the concert hall.
