Julian Anderson’s new Violin Concerto In liebliche Bläue – his first ever concerto – extends the conventional exploration of relationships to the spacial. Beginning off stage, the soloist’s physical location changes throughout the work, altering the dynamic between soloist, orchestra, and conductor. The work was written especially for Carolin Widmann.
