Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D major, Op. 35 - Tchaikovsky 1. Allegro moderato When the warmhearted orchestral introduction quiets down, the emotionally vivid solo violin (hereafter the "violin") enters with a brief cadenza, then plays the famous main theme, a stream of beautiful thematic restatements, and another breathtaking cadenza filled with chromatic scales, beautiful accidentals and extended trill with such restrained passion(!) that the violin is beside itself. A sweet-voiced flute enters to recap the main theme, spurring the violin to flourish with even more virtuosic thematic variations soaring to dramatic fast runs preceding the fiery coda. The orchestral sound is proportionate for the warm, expressive violin to shine through the entire movement. 2. Canzonetta: Andante A calm, tender movement for a brief respite. The mellifluous violin is warm, lyrical with a whiff of sweet melancholy, reminiscing an unrequited love that still beats strongly in one's heart years on. 3. Allegro vivacissimo A series of short Russian ballet scores starting with big-hearted orchestral opening. The dark, sonorous violin enters with a short blazing cadenza and, in a heartbeat, leaps to flying staccato. Various higher-voice solo instruments enter in lower registers, so the violin feels safe to resume singing its unrequited love with lyrical Romanticism. The festival mood is infectious and the violin blossoms with explosive virtuosic pyrotechnics in magnificent Russian grandeur into grand orchestral fanfare. II. Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in E minor - Jules Conus 1. Allegro molto - Andante espressivo The sweeping orchestra sections evoke Golden Era Hollywood Romance, and the sweet, searing violin swirls and shimmers with evocative lyricism and distinct Paganini-influenced melodic harmonies. 2. Adagio Passionate, tender, expressive. A breathtaking love theme for the legato-singing violin, accompanied by lightly scored orchestra. 3. Andante espressivo - Cadenza Fervently, the restrained violin reprises its longing melody from the first movement even more impassioned; cinematic orchestra interjections propel the violin to render a dramatic, extended cadenza of gripping intensity and breathtaking virtuosity.
