“The Concerto for Violin and Orchestra Op. 35 (1945), first performed by renowned violinist Jascha Heifetz, presents challenges for present-day leading violinists. The rich neoromantic score, which is very demanding for both the soloist as well as the orchestra, was convincingly presented by Nandor Szederkenyi.
