Quotes & Highlights
- "Ms. Josefowicz gave a thrilling performance ... playing with gleaming sound, supple technique and , amazingly, from memory."— <em>The New York Times</em>
Two ardent champions of contemporary composition, Maestro Salonen and violinist Leila Josefowicz have collaborated numerous times, and in fact, his Violin Concerto was composed for her. A four movement work that covers a wide range of emotions, the piece, with its “brilliant surface and wonderful sound” (The New York Times), presents a vivid complement to the ever-reverberant sounds of Wagner as witnessed in excerpts from his unforgettable Ring cycle.
