For a long time, the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius yearned to become a great violin virtuoso. So, it was all the more painful for him when he realized that he had started his training too late for the arduous path of a soloist. Out of pure passion for the instrument that had so captivated him, he wrote a highly virtuoso violin concerto in 1903. Unlike Sibelius, the Japanese violinist Midori made her debut under Zubin Mehta at the age of twelve and recorded Sibelius’ only solo concerto together with him in 1994. For over 35 years, Midori has been touching audiences with her highly precise and intense playing, creating unforgettable moments in the reinterpretation of established standards. Nielsen’s Fourth Symphony was also meant to be for eternity. Bearing the title “The Inextinguishable,” Nielsen was trying to “suggest in one word what only music itself is capable of expressing completely: the elementary will to live. Music is life and like it, inextinguishable,” Nielsen wrote in the preface to the score.
