Tchaikovsky's Song Without Words played by Alexander Sitkovetsky

Violinist Alexander Sitkovetsky gives a detailed insight into his practice regime in our June issue. Over the course of single day he experiments with playing without a shoulder rest, tackles some tricky cadenzas and looks over the Mendelssohn, Beethoven, Mozart Fourth and Shostakovich First concertos.

Here's an archive performance by the violinist from September 2007, recorded at London's Wigmore Hall. He is accompanied at the piano by his mother, Olga Sitkovetsky.
