Concerto – the word summons up virtuosity, mastery and melody delivered by a single instrument. Brahms’s Violin Concerto is just that, its messages elevated and inspired at the hands of master soloist Tianwa Yang. Then to Bartók, whose blazing Concerto for Orchestra gives each instrument of the orchestra a chance to shine.
