NEW MUSIC TUESDAY | Anders Hillborg Violin Concerto No. 2 - 2017 US Premiere [NEW]

Canadian violin virtuoso James Ehnes talks us through Swedish composer Anders Hillborg's newly premiered Violin Concerto No. 2

Canadian violin virtuoso James Ehnes talks us through Swedish composer Anders Hillborg's newly premiered Violin Concerto No. 2.

The world premiere performance was given by soloist Lisa Batiashvili, conductor Sakari Oramo and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic in October, 2016 - with James just last month performing the US premiere of the work with conductor Osmo Vänskä and the Minnesota Orchestra.

The 27 minute concerto, which sought to redefine the relationship between the soloist and the orchestra, was hailed by the Leipziger Volkszeitung as “fresh and skillfully constructed, virtuosic ... and unbelievably exciting."
