Sibelius Violin Concerto in D minor Op 47

Vesa-Matti Leppänen Violin

After a disastrous premiere, Sibelius reworked his Violin Concerto substantially, removing some of its most difficult sections. Even in this more commonly played revised version, the Concerto remains one of the most difficult works written for violin – while still retaining the power to move, inspire and exhilarate.
