THE VIRTUE OF EXTOLLING SOMETHING SMALL

Having the opportunity to listen to whom, in 2010, became the youngest awarded violinist of the prestigious Jean Sibelius International Violin Competition. So, performing this composer's violin concerto is a joy and an honour.

Sibelius and Dvořák occupy a prominent place in the history of music for having far exceeded the challenge that musical nationalism set at the end of the 19th century: to achieve a balanced and coherent combination between the traditional and the modern. Finland and the Czech Republic obtained with these two composers an unprecedented international relevance in terms of musical creation, so that they turned that 'small' national music of those two 'little' countries into something infinitely bigger and irreplaceable.

The three movements of Sibelius’s extremely difficult Concerto (1903-1904) combine technical virtuosity and expressive demands with melodies inspired by traditional culture and the orchestration of great romantic composers such as Brahms. In the four movements of the Dvořák symphony (1889) we will be able to hear the influence on the rhythm of the Bohemian dances and the folk-inspired melodies in a symphony that stands out for its cordial and affectionate atmosphere.
