Pierre Jalbert’s new two-movement concerto for violin and orchestra received a premiere by soloist Frank Almond and co-commissioner Milwaukee Symphony. The Milwaukee Shepherd called the music “sophisticated and episodic, constantly exploring delicately layered textures. Mysterious, shimmering sounds were intricately orchestrated,” saying “Jalbert writes in a way that flatters the solo violin, with unusual tremolos and trills, building in a pleasing natural balance between soloist and orchestra.”
