Two fine concertos by Magnus Lindberg

The two absolutely must-hear concertos from different stages in Magnus Lindberg’s career are both excellent proof of his eminence as a composer. The resonant concerto rich in detail proves that the piano is not a percussion instrument. The critically-acclaimed violin concerto is considered one of the finest of its kind for decades, not only virtuosic but lyrical, too. Magnus Lindberg will himself conduct the visiting Tapiola Sinfonietta.
