About This Performance


Weill’s Violin Concerto (1924) – with the unusual accompaniment of a wind band – at times surges with anxious energy and, at other moments, broods with world-weariness. Salonen closes with Hindemith’s magnificent Symphony (1934), composed as material for his politically charged opera about a Renaissance master painter.
