This week on SymphonyCast, with host Steve Seel, we hear Jean Sibelius' Violin Concerto. The piece is rough in language and captures the impressions of Nordic landscapes. We also hear Maurice Ravel's waltz apotheosis La Valse and Guillaume Connesson's highly expressive orchestral piece Flammenschrift, which is characterized by rhythmic eruptions.
