Sergei Prokofiev
Vi­ol­in Con­certo No. 1 in D ma­jor, opus 19

Lisa Ba­tiashvili is cer­tainly one of the best vi­ol­in­ists of her gen­er­a­tion. Her in­ter­pret­a­tion of Sergei Prokofiev’s Vi­ol­in Con­cert No. 1 is a spec­tac­u­lar mani­fest­a­tion of the multi-fa­ceted oeuvre of the great mas­ter. She is kindredly ac­com­pan­ied by the Gust­av Mahler Youth Or­ches­tra un­der the guid­ance of Franz Welser-Möst. Ba­tiashvili’s vir­tu­os­ity and briskness truly make her per­form­ance a mem­or­able event. The con­cert re­lay is pre­ceeded by a 10 minutes in­tro­duc­tion.
