American avant-garde: early modernist Charles Ives poses unanswerable questions and fascinates audiences with powerful symphonic gestures. A film score classic: renowned Hollywood composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold imbues his Violin Concerto with generous cinematic impressions and has no idea that a brilliant competition winner from Latvia will once include it in her repertoire. And French romanticism: withdrawn organ master César Franck’s candid, moving message in the colours of the symphony orchestra.
