Sibelius’s lone concerto for violin ranks among the greatest concertos ever devised for this instrument. With its traditional three movement form, it combines majestic orchestral passages with a virtuosic solo instrumentals. Dated 1903-1905, it did not emerge as a major repertoire work, poised between the waning of Romanticism and the emergence of modernity, for another 50 years. German violinist Christian Tetzlaff is one of the Finnish composer’s foremost performers, and has recorded his complete works for violin and his string quartets. In the second half, the London Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Robin Ticciati will showcase the most passionate of Bruckner’s symphonies.
