“Salonen has a conductor’s ear for translucent, shimmering sonorities, but there’s character and substance here, too.” — The Times

Esa-Pekka Salonen’s four-movement Violin Concerto is regarded as one of the greatest additions to the concerto genre in the twenty-first century. Written for American violinist Leila Josefowicz, the concerto “appears headed straight into the standard repertoire” (Classical Review) and has been performed around the world since its premiere in 2009. The work is coupled with Salonen’s Nyx, a single-movement pulsing piece for full orchestra that paints a musical portrait of the shadowy Greek goddess.
