Newstalgia Mid-Week Concert with the North German Radio Symphony conducted by Matthias Foremny and featuring violinist Hyeyoon Park in music of Berlioz, Korngold and Ysaye.

Hyeyoon Park. And a rather wonderful fiddle player too.

Over to Hamburg by way of Rome this week. A concert given by The North German Radio Symphony conducted by Matthias Foremny as broadcast by RAI Radio 3 in Italy. It features the wonderful Korean violin sensation Hyeyoon Park playing the Violin Concerto by Erich Wolfgang Korngold plus an encore of the Ysaye Sonata for Solo Violin Number 2.

The concert was recorded in Hamburg on October 21, 2010.

It's short at a little over 45 minutes so it's all on one player.

Here are the notes:

Concerto Euroradio
violino Hyeyoon Park
direttore Matthias Foremny

Hector Berlioz
Le Carnaval Romain', Ouverture op.9

Erich Wolfgang Korngold
Concerto per violino e orchestra in re maggiore op.35
- Moderato nobile
- Romance: Andante
- Finale: Allegro assai vivace

Eugène Ysaÿe
Sonata per violino solo in la minore op. 27 n. 2

Registrato il 21 ottobre 2010 nella Laeiszhalle di Amburgo>

I think you'll agree this constitutes pretty serious Anti-Road Rage Wednesday music.
