Two top violins in shootout at OK Colorado
July 31, 2014 by norman lebrecht
Vadim Gluzman and Philippe Quint are college friends and professional rivals.
Tonight, they slug it out at a ‘violin duel’ concert in the Colorado mountains.
Brave of them, and really challenging.
They open with Louis Spohr’s Duo Concerto for two violins No. 2 in D major, Op. 67. Gluzman then plays Mozart’s F-major sonata, followed by Quint in Jean-Marie LecLair’s D-major sonata. After the interval, it’s Moszkowski, Corigliano and Sarasate.
They should do this somewhere more central. That’s real competition.
