Classical Music Playlist, February 22, 2022

As Frederique Chopin, violinist of Polish origin Henryk Wieniawski was a virtuoso musician who also composed. After an untimely death at 44 following intense touring, including across the United States, Wieniawski left behind a legacy of a higher level of play, important lessons Studies still practiced, and several key compositions for his instrument. One was his Violin Concerto No. 2 in D minor. It is an essential part of the repertoire of any professional violinist, and today it is the masterpiece from noon to 2 p.m.
