From the corners of the European continent come three bright, beautiful and bold pieces. Each is quite different yet each one shows the amazing variety of color in the orchestral sound. Spanish music with the color and rhythm of Andalusian folk dance, then a 20th Century homage to the stately 17th Century, the France of Versailles. Climactically, the most passionate and beautiful of all violin concertos, that of Peter Tchaikovsky.
