Thanks Tim – i have a personal connection with this piece. In 1973, while still a teenager, i was, amazingly for myself, the first violinist to publicly perform it in my native country. The music was not published there but i was given a copy by a fellow student from Greece. The following year, my teacher (D.O.) asked me to give the music to his other student (G.K.) who then started playing it in his recitals, brilliantly of course. Actually, i got some pretty good mileage out of this piece myself as well, performing it, among other occasions, as a solo encore on several tours as a member of the Moscow Conservatory Chamber Orchestra, which was really weird because i was not even the first concertmaster. And i did not hear NM’s recording of it until many years later because it was not available behind the Iron Curtain. It is certainly a fun piece to play.
Wow, MarK, thanks for this fascinating story.
