Josefowicz, Stravinsky close festival – Jackson Hole News & Guide

“This will be my first real solo violin concerto back in public — not virtual, not chamber.”  ~Leila Josefowicz, violin

As the centerpiece of these final concerts of the festival’s 2021 season, Josefowicz will perform Stravinsky’s grossly overlooked Concerto for Violin in D Major, composed in 1931. Also on the program, GTMF Music Director Sir Donald Runnicles will lead the Festival Orchestra in Maurice Ravel’s orchestral version of his “Alborada de gracioso,” a spirited, Spanish-flavored dance-like piece from about 1919 originally, composed as part of a piano suite; and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s profound and iconoclastic Symphony No. 4 in F minor.
