Mendelssohn

Audio will be available later today.

Renaud Capucon is a 30-year-old whiz kid who finds himself a darling of the concert world. He plays the Mendelssohn E Minor Violin Concerto with the Budapest Festival Orchestra in Santa Barbara, California, Ivan Fischer conducting. Then, for an encore: a traditional Hungarian folk tune.
