The Concerto for Violin and Orchestra Op.103 was written in 1958 and is yet another superb orchestral work by Edmund Rubbra. Typically, this is a work that calls more on musicality than on virtuosity, although Rubbra knew the violin well for having long partnered his wife and for having long played in a trio with William Pleeth. Rubbra's familiarity with the instrument certainly helped him avoiding technical ‘tricks’ and concentrating his creative energies more on an inward-looking solo part than an outward-dashing virtuosic one!
This is an arrangement for Solo Violin with Piano Accompaniment. The solo violin part is also included on a separate insert.
