Utah Symphony Sibelius Violin Concerto
The now lauded orchestra was founded in 1940 and was originally called the WPA Orchestra. It was formed as part of the Roosevelt’s New Deal initiative which granted the orchestra a total of five performances. The roster included fifty two part-time, albeit talented, musicians who helped earn the orchestra a good reputation early on. As the decade wore on, the Utah Symphony rose to new heights, due in no small part to the leadership of the charismatic Maurice Abravanel.
Nothing short of a visionary, Abravanel’s efforts as Music Director helped bring acclaim and notice to the Utah Symphony for the better part of three decades. During this time, the orchestra became known as an accomplished ensemble and even made recordings of works by the likes of Gottschalk, Satie, Varese and Milhaud. As a result, every Utah Symphony concert became the go-to destination for anyone who liked contemporary classical music. The orchestra has also maintained this inimitable honor throughout its existence, by helping to premier various works by American composers over the 20th century. Now, the Utah Symphony performs shows all over the globe as well as touring small communities in Utah each year. It also accompanies the Utah Opera for several productions annually, and performs its own shows at the acclaimed Abravanel Hall – hailed as one of the best concert halls anywhere in the world - near Temple Square in Salt Lake City.
For its latest concert, the Utah Symphony will perform the Violin Concerto in D minor by the famous Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. Known as a key figure in the establishment of the Finnish national identity, Sibelius is highly regarded as one of the most technical, as well as brilliant, musicians of both his country – where he is still widely celebrated – and his time. To this day, his works command an unprecedented level of skill to perform properly, but are, nevertheless, still performed and even recorded.
The Violin Concerto in D minor is featured among of Sibelius’ most famous and best works, among the likes of compositions such as the Karelia Suite, The Swan of Tuonela, Finlandia and Valse triste. It was originally dedicated to the accomplished German violinist Willy Burmester but was later rededicated to the twelve year-old Hungarian musical prodigy Ferenc von Vecsey. The Violin Concerto first premiered in 1904, but was beset with problems. It was incomplete and the original soloist could not perform, leading to a horrible performance by his replacement. Afterwards, Sibelius revised the entire concerto and hired another soloist to perform the extremely complex composition. This revised version was performed a year later, in 1905, and was much better received.
The only work of its kind by Sibelius, Violin Concerto in D minor is still noted for its nuanced innovations. It consists of three movements, all in different, seemingly-simple time signatures. The performance includes a very precise number of instruments. These are two bassoons, two oboes, two trumpets, two flutes, three trombones, four horns, two clarinets and two trumpets. The score also features parts for timpani as well as for strings.
The upcoming Utah Symphony Sibelius Violin Concerto, then, is a fitting match, in every sense of the phrase. The concert is sure to be one of the greatest highlights of the year in classical music and is bound to be a major draw for music enthusiasts. It would be no surprise whatsoever, then, if cheap Utah Symphony Sibelius Violin Concerto tickets became one of the hottest entertainment commodities of the year.
