Review: This is an extra ordinary violin concerto. The more you listen to it, the more you will enjoy it and the more it will call to you with its strange glasslike textures and rolling rhythms. There is much lyricism here, as can be heard in the first movement and the cantilena(the heart) of the concerto and one of the finest pieces Tsontakis has composed. the second movement is called games, and, as expected, is great fun with Messian-esque piano accompaniment. Really extraordinary.
The concerto is relatively short so there are two additional pieces on four tracks.
The first is a pretty sensational piece of music called Claire de lune, which is sort of modern textureharmony take on Tsontakis' view of Debussy and again, the more you listen, the more you are rewarded.
The Past, The Passion is the final piece and it is the most difficult I think-or the most avante-garde. It still has lines to follow however so perhaps it will just require more listening-which I expect to do anyway because everything else on this disc is so fine.
If you enjoy modern music that has a discernable line, inventive orchestration and texture, and, wonder of wonders--beauty and a melody---then this is recommended experiment. As mentioned, this won the Grawenmeyer award which doesnt really matter to me, but it goes to show that the piece is well thought of.
