Sinfonietta, Janacek
Program Notes

Dvorák Violin Concerto

Apr13
3:00 PM
Janácek, Dvorák, Salonen
Sunday, April 13, 2014

Viscerally explosive and impeccably virtuosic, German violinist Christian Tetzlaff plays Dvorák’s soulful and folk-inspired Violin Concerto. Framing this masterpiece are two works from another Czech composer, Leoš Janácek: the Sinfonietta with its jubilant brass fanfares and the overture to his final opera, exuding an impassioned belief in the essential goodness of mankind even in the bleakest circumstances. Esa-Pekka Salonen also conducts his own work, Nyx, which he called a “complex counterpoint for almost one hundred musicians playing tutti at full throttle.”

Postconcert CD signings with Violinist Christian Tetzlaff on Friday April 11 and Sunday April 13 in Grainger Ballroom.
