Bomsori joins the conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France for this programme filmed in Paris in September 2023. The Korean violinist performs one of the great violin concertos of the repertoire, Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto of 1878, a work which combines the composer's unrivalled melodic gift with symphonic ambition and plenty of virtuoso fireworks to thrilling effect. To complete the programme, conductor and orchestra present Shostakovich's Symphony No. 6. Composed in 1939, it's a work that turns traditional symphonic form on its head to begin with an expansive slow movement, followed by two faster movements, including characteristically acerbic presto finale.
