During a productive year of writing works for strings, English composer Frederick Delius composed his Violin Concerto in 1916. Written in one movement but with shifting tempos and a sense of improvisation, Delius’ Violin Concerto is a poetic work that moves towards a serene finish. . This is today’s noon masterpiece at 2:00 p.m.
