Davar Newspaper – Marc Lavry Discusses His Work

In a 1939 interview with the Hebrew Davar newspaper Lavry discusses his compositions:

My Concerto for Violin and Orchestra is one of the latest works from December 1938. This is a pure concerto, yet even here there us much that I could not have written outside of Israel.
The concerto has three movements, but I deviated from the norm. The first movement is an Allegro with Cadenza; the second begins as a Cadenza but progresses to Allegro; and the third movement is a Vivace with a dance rhythm.
