(Julian Rachlin - new face on the Musical horizon)

Today's installment of the Mid-Week Concert takes us back to France during the 2009 Musica Mundi Festival featuring Violinist Julian Rachlin and Pianist Itamar Golan. Recorded by Radio France on July 20, 2009.

Genval : Récital Julian Rachlin, Violon et Itamar Golan, Piano
Concert donné le 20 juillet 2009 au Château du Lac de Genval dans le cadre du Festival Musica Mundi

Franz Schubert (1797-1828)
Sonate en la majeur D. 821, Arpeggione, Version pour violon

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
Sonate N°6 en La majeur Op.30 N°1
Sonate N°9 en La majeur Op.47, Kreutzer

Since it's a 90 minute concert, I've split it into two parts -Part 1 is the Schubert and Beethoven op. 30 and Part 2 is the Kreutzer.

Something calming for this hectic Wednesday - another one of those antidotes to Road Rage. Announcements are in French, but as always are edited down so you don't have to grab your pocket translator to figure it all out.

And while you're at it . .

We really, honestly, completely need it.

Can you help us out?
