The Violin Concerto is frequently cited as a turning point in Barber's output, a work which reflects both the ingratiating melodic-Romantic style of his earlier compositions and the first intimations of a new, leaner approach. It is clearly divided between the first two lyrical movements and the explosively energetic finale which exploits the more brilliant and virtuoso characteristics of the violin in a torrent of racing triplets. Lutosławski’s Concerto for Orchestra is one of the most exciting pieces of the 20th century. Like Bartók’s work of the same title, it allows each orchestral section solo opportunities, creating a richly varied kaleidoscope of instrumental colours and an invigorating harmonic palette bursting with rhythmic energy. The Dance Suite is a musical tour through the myriad folk styles that Bartók studied – the music of Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey. Brilliant woodwinds and plenty of percussion, including four-hand piano and harp, contribute to the variety of musical textures.
