In the preface from an orchestral score (polish edition I believe) of the Wieniawsky concertos I've read "The first of Wieniawsky's conc. is much alike Ernst's...by the theatral pathos of the themes...The first movement of Wieniawsky's conc. in fis moll...lacks the contrast between the themes and the developement...the compositional style prooves the composer's preocupation for virtuosity effects and not for finding new componistical structures.The second mov...is differenciated by...melodies of a prononced triteness...etc...etc
If it is killed from the very beginning, how would a concert of such deepness which can truely be named transcedental can gane its deserved statute if critics makes it like a shame to perform it and, the real tragedy here, performers ignore it?
Have you heard Gitlis playing it? Absolutely exquisite!
