The "Concerto for Piano and Orchestra" was composed by Bruno Maderna in 1958 and 1959 and was first performed in September 1959 at the Ferienkurse für Neue Musik, Darmstadt. The Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra was conducted by Bruno Maderna, and the soloist was the work's dedicatee, the American pianist David Tudor. The "Concerto for Violin and Orchestra" was composed a decade after the "Piano Concerto," 10 years that were rich in both human and artistic experiences for Maderna. It had its first performance in September 1969 at the Venice Contemporary Music Festival, once again with Maderna conducting, and Theo Olof as the solo violinist. Markus Bellheim has been attracting attention as one of the most interesting and versatile pianists of his generation since winning the International Messiaen Competition 2000 in Paris. His extensive concert activities have led him through all of Europe, to Asia and America. Thomas Zehetmair is one of the outstanding artistic personalities of the present day, enjoying great worldwide prestige as a violinist, conductor and chamber musician. He has recorded most of his violin repertoire, including Mozart's "Violin Concertos" with the Orchestra Of The Eighteenth Century under Frans Brüggen, which is considered a reference recording, Beethoven's "Violin Concerto" with the same orchestra, Elgar's "Violin Concerto" with the Hallé Orchestra Of Manchester under Mark Elder (Gramophone Award 2010) and the "24 Paganini Caprices" (Midem Classic Award 2010). Performed by: Thomas Zehetmair (violin), Mark Bellheim (piano), hr-Sinfonieorchester, Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Arturo Tamayo.
