The Britten Violin Concerto was breathtaking to experience. It is a grossly underplayed masterpiece, stunningly played. By coincidence, I am reading "Letters from a Life" the selected letters of Benjamin Britten and it provided extensive background of the work and of the time it was created (and later revised).

My husband treated me to the 11 am presentation of this concert on Feb. 25 (my birthday). Powerful program.
