On demand: Esa-Pekka Salonen's Violin Concerto

GSOplayRecorded at Gothenburg Concert Hall: Stora Salen, Gothenburg, Sweden
Online until Saturday 1 June 2019

“One of our most thoughtful and intense musicians.” That’s what the New York Times wrote about experimental violinist Jennifer Koh, who is passionate about contemporary music.

Here, she is the soloist of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s celebrated violin concerto, which was awarded the prestigious Grawemeyer award of 100,000 dollars in 2012. A captivating and streamlined work that summarises his many years working with music in Los Angeles.

Watch it performed by Koh together with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra led by Santtu-Matias Rouvali.

Filmed in March 2019.
