Chevalier Violin Concerto
Sibelius Symphony No. 2
David Murphy conductor
Randall Goosby violin*
Swordsman, adventurer, master-violinist and man of fashion, the Chevalier de Saint-Georges cut a dash in 18th century Paris – and he’s made quite an impression since being rediscovered in the 21st century too. The young American violinist Randall Goosby loves his music, and this elegant, ardent concerto by the composer they called ‘the Black Mozart’ is a wonderfully refreshing complement to the brooding emotions and elemental power of Sibelius at his most passionate.
Finlandia is the patriotic classic that they tried to ban; while the Second Symphony grows, like some great river, from a gentle beginning to a soul-shaking song of triumph. Conductor David Murphy will make it catch fire.
