Gävle Symphony Orchestra conducted by Christian Rief - Gävla Konserthus
Program Info: Elizabeth Ogonek - As though birds Erich Wolfgang Korngold - Violin Concerto in D major, op. 35, the concerto has themes from the scores for the movies ANOTHER DAWN (1937), ANTHONY ADVERSE (1936) & THE PRINCE AND THE PAUPER (1937) Dmitri Shostakovich - Symphony No. 10
Erich Wolfgang Korngold was a prolific composer in the early days of film music in Hollywood and was no stranger to powerful orchestration and romantic melodies, a role model for many of today's film music composers. His violin concerto has all this and more - a devilishly difficult third movement that often made many violinists turn away from the score. Stefan Jackiw is often described by critics as playing Korngold's violin concerto with "challenging virtuosity" and "heartbreaking beauty". An "optimistic tragedy" or a portrait of a dictator? What best describes Shostakovich's 10th Symphony? What emotions does it evoke in these uncertain times? Is it history that repeats itself?
