Click on the link here for Audio Player: Pierre-Max Dubois – Violin -Concerto – 1957
I originally ran this post a couple years via my old website. But many readers weren’t happy with the sound quality available at the time. So, as promised, I am running it again with new and improved sound and a new transfer.
This is the World Premier performance of the Violin Concerto by Pierre-Max Dubois, who completed it in 1955. It was given its world Premier during the 1957 Strasbourg Music Festival, with The Strasbourg Radio Symphony, conducted by Louis Martin and featuring the legendary Devy Erlih, violin.
It was recorded by ORTF in concert on June 20, 1957.
To my knowledge, it hasn’t been reissued (unless someone put out my original post on CD in the past two years) and this is the only available recording of that all-but forgotten work.
And now it sounds good.
