Paganini's Violin Concerto No. 4

As part of ViolinFest, Symphony Hall focuses on the legacy of Nicolo Paganini, the composer and violinist who, as legend has it, sold his soul to the devil in exchange for his remarkable fiddling abilities. Tonight we look into his Violin Concerto No. 4.

Ruben Tomasov from Brooklyn

It calls my attention that not one single recording of JanTomasow has been included in "ViolinFest" so far. There are still eight more days to go and I wonder whether WQXR would broadcast at least one of those recordings, such as Fauré's Sonata in A No. 1 in A, Op. 13; Debussy's Sonata No. 3 in g, La Plus que Lente, Il Pleure dans mon cœur, and Minstrels; Mozart's Divertimenti No 15 in B-flat, K287 and No. 17 in D, K334; Vivaldi's L'Estro Armonico, Op. 3 and The Four Seasons, Op. 8.
I know WQXR's library has some of Jan Tomasow's recordings, so why not play one?
