Jean Sibelius Concerto for violin and orchestra in D major
Richard Strauss Sinfonia domestica

This orchestral concert presents two masterpieces of the early 20th century. Although the musical depiction of one’s personal life was not uncommon, Richard Strauss’ work is a blatant realism of the family life, including arguments with his wife and screams of young children. Indeed, this multi-movement continuous work describes a twenty-four hour life-cycle in the Strauss household.

Sibelius’ childhood dream of becoming a violin virtuoso is reflected in this concerto, in what can be coined as his first abstract work.

This concert features in #Inhobbok, organized by the Ministry for Gozo.
