Serge Prokofieff's Concerto No. 2 in G Minor (Opus 63) for Violin and Piano is published here as part of the excellent Boosey & Hawkes catalogue. The concerto is more conventional than the composer's early bold compositions. It starts off with a simple violin melody related to traditional Russian folk music. The graceful violin melody flows throughout the entire second movement, and ends with the initial violin theme reappearing in the orchestra's somber lower register, now accompanied by the solo violin. The third movement rondo's theme has a taste of Spain, with the clacking of castanets each time the theme appears.
I. Allegro moderato
II. Andante assai
III. Allegro, ben marcato
