The first thing you sense is a quiet shimmer in the air. And then, like some vast mountain rising from the clouds, the opening melody of Bruckner’s Seventh Symphony soars majestically towards the heavens. Bruckner said it came to him in a dream, played by an angel – but when Ilan Volkov brings his searching musical intelligence and emotional insight to bear on this monumental “cathedral in sound”, the results might well be revelatory. Two contrasting – but equally inventive – masterpieces set the scene: an ebullient little symphony from JS Bach’s son Carl Phillip Emmanuel, and the witty, electrically-charged Violin Concerto that Stravinsky intended to be unplayable. No fear on that score from our soloist Carolin Widmann.
