Järvi conducts Bruckner



  • Paavo Järvi conductor
  • Leila Josefowicz violin

Genius enjoys a challenge.

Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto begins with a chord that was supposed to be impossible, though with a violinist as great as Leila Josefowicz (‘Wonderful virtuosity’: The Daily Telegraph), there’s no such thing as unplayable music. Anton Bruckner, meanwhile, was aiming for heaven itself, and the opening melody of his Seventh Symphony came to him in a dream. That was what he said, anyway, but in the hands of guest conductor Paavo Järvi, Bruckner’s mighty climaxes, rapturous visions and soaring Alpine vistas become the deeply moving drama of a human soul in pursuit of a vision beyond words.
