July 11, 2018, 9:30 AM · Miklos Rozsa, Sinfonia Concertante for violin, cello and orchestra op. 29 (the excerpt is from the 3rd movement)

July 11, 2018, 11:17 AM · Thank you so much Katarina .

BTW, the sinfonia concertante was commissioned by Piatigorky to be premiered by him and Heifetz (who had premiered the Rozsa violin concerto a few years before).
