Polonaise brillante No 2 in A major, Op 21

composer

 
In 1870, after Wieniawski had returned to Russia for the prestigious position as principal violinist of St Petersburg’s court orchestra, he produced his Polonaise brillante No 2 in A major, Op 21. More complex and expansive than the first, the new work is no less virtuosic, its outer brilliance framed by a more pastoral lyricism yet not without expressive demands.
