Ooh, thanks for posting these! I'd like to learn the Kabelevsky soon, so this is awesome. :)
Great, so I perhaps help you with this. I was rejected for an audition as 1th violin (they had enough 2th violinists) in an orchestra that played this piece. But I have heard the concert from this amateurorchestra. I have never heard a professional orchestra playing this violinconcerto of Kabalevski.
To everybody who wants recordings, I recommend:
Conus Heifetz-Izler Solomon
Karlowicz: Andrzej Kulka-Witold Rowicki
Great work, Bram....
I showed it to many befriended violinists.... The solo Capriccio by Vieuxtemps on your channel remains my favorite!

I have actually played the Kabalevsky. It is such a charming, witty work, filled with little snippets of Russian Folk songs and classic Russian orchestration. It remains one of my favorite concertos.
Thank you for posting this, Mr. Heemskerk! I applaud you for your knowledge of the underplayed violin repertoire.
I am a big fan of the Kabalevsky. Actually, I don`t think it is so unknown. Rather, it is one of those unfortunate works that is both good music and `good for intermediate students.` Somehow these works become the staple of teaching studios and perhaps examining boards and less and less of the light of day in a concert hall. IT`s a real shame.
The Kabalevsky isan excellent stepping stone to the `biggies` which , in my opinion are often started far too soon, being use das teahcing material rather than having the chops set up and focusing on the artistic content.
