And apparently no one has paid attention to this great piece. To my knowledge, there are still only 2 recordings of it, and it has rarely (if ever) been played. Am I wrong?
Maybe it's because Virgil Thomson (also a famous music critic) penned one of the most famous criticisms of one of the world's greatest violinists, Jascha Heifetz. It was called "silk underwear music."
Anybody remember that?
Anyway, happy holidays to everyone. And may your new year bring you all of the success and happiness you deserve, especially after the time, energy, and sacrifices you have made to learn to play the violin - perhaps one of the most difficult things to do on this earth.
