Vision in sound

I enjoyed Pictures at the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra last weekend. I found this review in the Post-Dispatch. In contrast, I found Oliver Knussen‘s Violin Concerto a good listen. A few packages had violinist Leila Josefowicz maintaining complex countermelodies on the high and low strings. She took some strange stances to play it, though. I liked the pieces before and after it although the intervening week has faded my memory. Pictures at an Exhibition was a big and delightful finish.
