Colombian high-flyer conductor Lina Gonzales-Granados delves deep into the incredible variety of American music. The Violin Concerto of early 20th-century master Samuel Barber is glowingly melodic in a Romantic vein. The soloist is Christel Lee, first-prize winner of the 2015 Jean Sibelius Violin Competition.
Works by Jessie Montgomery and George Walker introduce voices of African-American composers, while Tangazo by Argentinean tango reformer Astor Piazzolla evokes the colourful sights and sounds of Buenos Aires.

The concert will be broadcasted on YLE Radio 1.
