Conductor JoAnn Falletta
Listen back to a 2008 interview with Grammy award-winning conductor JoAnn Falletta, and the radio broadcast premiere of Ernst von Dohnanyi's Violin Concerto No. 2 in C minor with Michael Ludwig, violin soloist, and maestro Falletta conducting the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
Falletta, conductor of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, discusses this unique concerto for violin and orchestra - which does not use a violin section at all. Instead, it highlights the viola section and the rest of the full orchestra. Hear the first recording by a major symphony orchestra of this rarely-heard concerto by Dohnanyi.
