NEW MUSIC TUESDAY | Gediminas Gelgotas Violin Concerto No. 1 - World Premiere [2018]

21-year-old Swiss violinist David Nebel performing the world premiere performance of Lithuanian composer Gediminas Gelgotas' Violin Concerto No. 1

21-year-old Swiss violinist David Nebel performing the world premiere performance of Lithuanian composer Gediminas Gelgotas' Violin Concerto No. 1.

Recorded on the 7th of July, 2018, with conductor Kristjan Järvi & the Baltic Sea Philharmonic - at the Kissinger Sommer Festival, in Germany.

"The whole concerto consists of two contrasting movements, each approximately 10 minutes in length ... and both movements have a cadenza-like virtuosic episode at the end ..." Gediminas has told The Violin Channel.

"The whole work is based on multi-stylistic influences ... it requires very rhythmic and direct phrasing and with a feeling of an inner pulse that is always moving the piece forward ... even during the most lyrical moments in the score," the 32-year-old former composer-in-residence at the Verbier Festival has said.

"I was inspired to create a musical language that could hopefully resonate with a larger audience ... and to create a sound world that will hopefully reflect the surroundings we're living in."
