Violin concerto, Kabalevsky

Abstract

Dmitri Kabalevsky composed a violin concerto in C Major. This concerto is comprised of three movements, but I will be playing the first movement. I will give a short presentation on Kabalevsky himself and on the history of the piece. This violin concerto is one of the first concertos Kabalevsky composed and he dedicated it to the Soviet youth. Kabalesky sought to motivate children and young students in the Soviet Union, through his music. This violin concerto was first performed by 18-year-old, Igor Bezrodny, in the fall of 1948. This piece is full of life and contains characteristics of Russian music. The first movement is full of quick rhythms and even contains a Ukrainian folk tune. Dmitri Kabalevsky served his country faithfully and reflected this in the music he wrote.
