Introduction

Erich Korngold was a groundbreaking composer of film scores and two-time Oscar winner who returned to the concert stage after the Second World War to prove wrong critics who questioned his artistic integrity – and how he did so! Containing elements of both late Romanticism and film scores, his violin concerto convinced both audiences and critics. Here in Helsinki it will be performed by the acclaimed American violinist Stefan Jackiw.
