MIssy Mazzoli says her Violin Concerto, “Procession,” casts the soloist as a “soothsayer, sorcerer, healer and pied piper,” leading the orchestra through five interconnected “healing spells.” We hear Mazzoli’s work performed live at the 2022 BBC Proms festival by violinist Jennifer Koh in a recording from August 15th, as Steve Seel continues showcasing performances from this summer’s Proms festival.
