Notes and Editorial Reviews

The concerto occupies a central place in the works of leading Belgian composer, pianist and conductor, Robert Groslot. His experience as a renowned soloist informs the instrumental possibilities and playing techniques of his compositions, which are notable for their refined and rich contrast. Conforming to his preference for one-movement structures, the Violin Concerto is laced with scintillating motifs both ethereal and playful as well as complex moods ranging from the dream-like and magical to the dark and violent. The Concerto for Orchestra is a meticulously structured and dazzlingly evocative showpiece. The prizewinning violinist Joanna Kurkowicz enjoys an active and versatile career as a soloist, recitalist, chamber musician and Read more concertmaster. She has performed worldwide in such venues as Carnegie Hall in New York, Jordan Hall in Boston, and the Grosse Saal in Salzburg, and has appeared as a soloist with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra and the Polish National Radio Orchestra in Katowice, among others. She currently serves as concertmaster to the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra. Read less
