DALIA’S MIXTAPE No. 2 featuring Leila Josefowicz
Leila Josefowicz, who specializes in contemporary music, has her work cut out playing three concertos in one concert. In Helen Grime’s piece, restless and dreamy elements are in unending conflict; in Thomas Adès’s concerto the magical atmosphere goes into a tailspin towards the unknown. These extremes of the emotional scale are complemented by Karl Amadeus Hartmann’s Concerto funèbre, which was written on the eve of World War II as a final spark of intellectuality and spirituality. The ‘Dalia’s Mixtape’ concert series, familiar from last season, will once again thrill orchestra and audience alike!
