Premiere of Gediminas Gelgotas' violin concerto

Lithuanian composer Gediminas Gelgotas' Violin Concerto was premiered at the Kissinger Sommer Festival, in Germany on the 7 July, 2018, with 21-year-old Swiss violinist David Nebel and the Baltic Sea Philharmonic, conductor Kristjan Järvi [read my interview with Gedminas].

In an interview with The Violin Channel, Gediminas Gelgotas described the concerto as consisting "of two contrasting movements, each approximately 10 minutes in length … and both movements have a cadenza-like virtuosic episode at the end", adding that he "was inspired to create a musical language that could hopefully resonate with a larger audience … and to create a sound world that will hopefully reflect the surroundings we’re living in.".
