Weekend of March 14, 2009
Sergei Prokofiev was living in Paris when he started writing his second violin concerto. But he suffered an incurable bout of homesickness, and returned to Russia in 1935. On today's show, we'll feature this half-French, half-Russian concerto. Violinist Liza Ferschtman is making her PT debut with this performance, accompanied by the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Yakov Kreizberg.
