Programme Note

The Violin concerto was composed during the winter 1978-79 especially for Anton Kontra.
There are 3 movements: First an extensive and varied dark allegro with the solo violin sometimes in contrast to the orchestra, sometimes influenced by it and once more emancipated and improvisation-like.
2nd movement, adagio, is lyrical but intense in its expression and ends with a cadence which leads directly to the concluding allegro molto where the solo violin is frisky and to some extent dominates the music to its end.
