Deutsche Grammophon B0017521-02
Salonen: Violin Concerto: IV, Adieu (12:02)
Leila Josefowicz, violin; Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra / Esa-Pekka Salonen
Salonen’s Violin Concerto was written for American violinist Leila Josefowicz. It has already been performed in major musical centers including London, Berlin, Boston, San Francisco and Los Angeles. “A fascinating hybrid of European modernist rigor and polyglot Californian cool,” wrote the Boston Globe. The concerto is coupled with Nyx (2011), a piece for orchestra that paints a musical portrait of the shadowy Greek goddess.
