The sweet sound of Grace Clifford’s violin is not to be missed. Antonín Dvořák must have had such a silken tone in mind when he filled his Violin Concerto with long, singable melodies. After re-writing it again and again, he perfected a concerto that sounds bold and spontaneous, a lyrical rhapsody with a flash of Slavic fire.
Our hearts are lifted, ready for adventure – now follow Bruckner! A steady pizzicato tread takes us on a winding path through the vast, fantastic landscape of his Fifth Symphony. Recurring echoes of a chorale, a waltz, a song… where are we? Not until the final pages does everything come together in an astonishing climax. A finale to remember!
