Dirk Brossé violin concerto Sophia

June 17, 2010 at 11:09 PM

I had the cd of the Belgian composer Dirk Brossé who had written the violin concerto Sophia for the Dutch violinist Liza Ferschtman. Sophia is a child-hospital in Rotterdam and the story goes about a young girl who gets blood-cancer, a bit tragic just like the Berg violin concerto, but this violin concerto is perhaps better without the Bachstealing part. Yesterday I was lucky to hear this rare piece life of a student orchestra and a national competition winner Rosanne Philippens. Someone has made a movie of it which you also see here below. It begins calm, but after 4.50 minutes in the first part you hear sirenes in the trompets and in the movie red blood cells. Only 4 of the 7 parts are played of the whole violin concerto. My movies are quite dark and the soloist is hard to see, because the light was bad to see the movie in the background.
