Quotes & Highlights
“Ms. Josefowicz gave a thrilling performance … playing with gleaming sound, supple technique and , amazingly, from memory.”— The New York Times
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.__
