Sinfonietta
Viscerally explosive and impeccably virtuosic, German violinist
Christian Tetzlaff plays Dvorˇák’s soulful and folk-inspired
Violin Concerto. Framing this masterpiece are two works from
another Czech composer, Leoš Janácˇ ek: 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.”
