October 18, 1973 - Violinist Charles Treger was the first American to win a prestigious competition in Poland. He is in town to perform with the Minnesota Orchestra. Treger talks about the competition and about Polish audiences. In Poland even the layman knows about music, they are an informed audience, they grow up with it. They are very conscious of their heritage, history and culture. He talks about the Joachim concerto that hasn?t be performed in public 60 or 70 years until he started playing it. Joachim, a contemporary of Brahms was not a great composer. However now there?s interest in composers not considered main composers. His Violin Concerto in D minor, while romantic, could be one of the most difficult ever written and it?s technically very demanding. Treger talks about his experience playing with Skrowaczewski and says he is superb.
