Valery Gergiev conducts Brahms and Szymanowski — With Janine Jansen London Symphony Orchestra

About

Alongside Maestro Valery Gergiev at the helm of the London Symphony Orchestra, the brilliant Janine Jansen performs Karol Szymanowski’s “terribly fantastical and unexpected” (in the composer's words) Violin Concerto No. 1. Written in 1916 and premiered in 1922, the work's single but internally-differentiated movement breaks with the Romantic convention of a three-movement concerto combining lyricism and technical brilliance. In Szymanowski's new language an unceasing multiplicity of ideas, unfolding along a daring spectrum of timbre and tone, results in an astonishing poetic unity in this piece that emblematizes twentieth-century innovation.
