Frank Peter Zimmermann (violin)
Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Manfred Honeck
Warsaw Philharmonic, Antoni Wit
For his latest recording, the eminent violinist Frank Peter Zimmerman has recorded the concertos Nos. 1 & 2 by Polish composer Karol Szymanowski, accompanied by the Warsaw Philharmonic under the baton of Antoni Wit. The final piece on the album is the violin concerto No. 1, op.35 by Benjamin Britten for which Zimmerman is partnered by the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra under Manfred Honeck. Once more Zimmermann excels in the whole technical range of his instrument and shows sensitivity for these unusual works.
