Esa-Pekka on his Violin Concerto (extended)

Esa-Pekka speaks about his Violin Concerto, performed by Leila Josefowicz.

Deutsche Grammophon released Out of Nowhere, a disc of Esa-Pekka Salonen's Violin Concerto and Nyx, featuring Leila Josefowicz and the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra. The title of the disc comes from the pencil markings Josefowicz and Esa-Pekka wrote over the first movement of the original score for the Grawemeyer Award-winning concerto. Esa-Pekka describes the piece as, in many ways, "a summary of my experiences as a musician and a human being at the watershed age of 50." Order the CD on Amazon today!http://ow.ly/dLhBF
