Out of Nowhere: Violin Concerto / NYX CD

The premiere recording of two new Salonen masterpieces. His Violin Concerto (Grawemeyer Prize, 2012) was composed for Leila Josefowicz and has been acclaimed as ‘Rhapsodic... inspired’ by The New York Times and as ‘Pure, euphoric poetry’ by Los Angeles Times. The symphonic poem Nyx is a ‘sweeping... alluring’ (The New York Times) orchestral portrait of the Greek goddess of night.
