LAC Sala Teatro

Luzerner Sinfonieorchester

James Gaffigan, conductor / Gil Shaham, violin

OrchestraFocus Mendelssohn


György Ligeti
Concerto Românesc (Romanian Concerto)

Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy
Violin Concerto in E minor, op. 64

Jean Sibelius
Symphony No. 2 in D major, op. 43

This concert associates Ligeti's twentieth-century style, reflected in the traditional music of Eastern Europe, with the Scandinavian folkloric-literary suggestions that appear in Sibelius' music. The cornerstone of the beautiful programme conducted by James Gaffigan is Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto performed by Gil Shaham, one of today's leading violinists.
