The unknown Russian A (Anton) Arensky wrote a violinconcerto. Here movement 1 + 2
Also a piece for violin + piano of Ysaye op.14 Rêve d' Enfent.
Arensky , Anton violinconcerto mvt3
Ysaye op.14 Rêve d' Enfent for violin + piano.
Only I wouldn't call Arensky "unknown." He's a well-established composer whose work has been widely performed and recorded.
I have never heard Arensky in a concerthall. But the reason for Arensky on Youtube is because a conductor of an amateurorchestra want to play this piece. But a programmer did not know this piece (now he can hear it), and he wrote me for information about this pievce, but he thought also about playing the violinconcerto of Kachaturian he had heard in teh Concertgebouw, Amsterdam.. But I have played Kachaturian before as 2th violin so I hope they will choose Arensky.
