The concert is full of southern temperament and harmonies, Wyman performs it just magnificently, it is a pity that it was recorded so little. The label is TU-1kl 33: the orchestra is dynamic though distorted and harsh, the solo violin tells amazing stories! The recording was originally made in pieces of 3.5 minutes – the beginning of the first part, the entire second part except the last 3.5 minutes and the end of the final part recorded noticeably worse.
Alexey Machavariani (1913-1895), Violin Concerto with Orchestra in D minor. Michael Wyman, violin, Symphony Orchestra of the All-Union Radio Committee, conductor O. Dimitriadid. D-0536-7, 1952
