Bomsori – Violin On Stage

Filmed at Wrocław’s National Forum of Music, this concert showcases the expressive and virtuosic playing of violinist Bomsori. Together with the NFM Wrocław Philharmonic and its Music Director Giancarlo Guerrero, she begins with music by Wieniawski, himself an exceptional violinist. His Concert Polonaise is full of challenges for the soloist, its bravura passages alternating with more lyrical moments. Written six years after the 1859 premiere in Paris of Gounod’s opera Faust, the Fantaisie brillante comprises five contrasting episodes, with rich and varied writing for the violin throughout. Orchestra and conductor then perform the Leonore Overture No.3, which distills in dramatic style all the darkness and light of Beethoven’s only opera. Finally Bomsori returns to the stage for another work for violin and orchestra inspired by operatic themes, Waxman’s dazzling Carmen Fantasie, which started life as part of his score for the 1946 film Humoresque.
