JoAnn Falletta, conductor
Listen to Jill's interview with 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 Maestra Falletta conducting the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Falletta, conductor of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, will discuss 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.
