Renard-burleskia kuvaava ketun häntäRadion sinfoniaorkesteri
With a view to tracing broad spans, our new Chief Conductor Nicholas Collon has picked out three theme composers for each season, one from the past and two the present. Today marks the start of the Stravinsky season. Renard, a burlesque composed for the sum of 2,500 Swiss francs, is a stage work somewhere between a ballet and an opera. The Violin Concerto of 1931 represents his later Neo-classical period, and the soloist is the phenomenal Leila Josefowicz, renowned for her performances of new music.
