The violin leaps acrobatically at one moment and swoons in ecstasy at another – Korngold’s vibrantly optimistic concerto is a rollicking adventure and passionate love scene all in one. Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances offer kaleidoscopic instrumental colours, from a lyrical saxophone solo to ghostly woodwinds evoking a haunted ballroom. Before it, a solo iridescent flute sets Debussy’s impressionist musical picture in motion. In an anthem for the 21st century, the strings play snappy, splintering, ricocheting figures in Jessie Montgomery’s riff on The Star-Spangled Banner.
