Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto is a work of considerable charm and grace, demanding a virtuoso of the highest order. Schumann’s Second is one of his most personal statements, a work of unique beauty and power. Perhaps Schumann’s struggles are reflected in a work that moves from the agitation of the first two movements, to the haunting lyrical beauty of the third, to the triumphant finale.
