David Robertson
Stephen Bryant violin

German composer Detlev Glanert invited BBC SO leader Stephen Bryant to introduce his violin concerto to the UK after a meeting at the 2009 BBC Proms. Inspired by Rilke’s Sonnets to Orpheus, the concerto is an ideal introduction to the composer’s beautifully crafted music and distinctive soundworld. The New York Times described David Robertson’s 2009 Carnegie Hall performance of Sibelius’s triumphant Fifth Symphony as ‘the most transparent and riveting account of Sibelius’s elusive Fifth Symphony in memory’.
