Randall Goosby, violin

“[Randall] Goosby plays like an angel with nothing to prove,” claims the L.A. Times.  The youngest recipient ever to win the Sphinx Concerto Competition and an artist dedicated to the dynamic music of Black composers, violinist Randall Goosby joins the Festival to perform a scintillating work by Saint-Saëns and Florence Price’s sweeping Second Violin Concerto. This concerto by Price was lost to history until 2009; similarly, the orchestral version of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Solemn Prelude was only recently rediscovered. The “energetic yet graceful” Ryan Bancroft (The Guardian), conductor of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, joins the Festival to lead Sibelius’ sonorous Second Symphony; Sibelius once said of its first movement, “It is as if the Almighty had thrown down the pieces of a mosaic for heaven’s floor and asked me to put them together.”

Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Solemn Prelude
Florence Price, Violin Concerto No. 2
Camille Saint-Saëns, Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso, Op. 28

Jean Sibelius, Symphony No. 2, Op. 43
