Vasily Petrenko and Midori perform Montsalvatge, Brahms and Elgar Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya

About

Live from the Auditori in Barcelona, the star-conductor Vasily Petrenko is invited by the OBC to conduct Montsalvatge, Elgar and Brahms, whose violin concerto is performed by the Japanese musician Midori!

Composed in 1992 as a commission of the Conducting Competition of the Orquestra de Cadaqués, Sortilegis by Xavier Montsalvatge is a sophisticated and rousing work. The piece meets the need to force the conductor to be aware of the numerous sound details and rhythm changes in the score and is also highly demanding of the orchestra. The result is a work of a Mediterranean character and one that is extremely attractive.
