AUGUST ENNA (1859-1939): Symphony No. 2 in E, Violin Concerto in D.
Catalogue Number: 08Z003
Description: On this newest endeavour, the Bogota´ Philharmonic Orchestra, under the direction of Joachim Gustafsson, turns its attention towards Danish composer August Enna with renderings of two of his charming orchestral works. Traces of several elements from Enna’s musical life converge in the Violin Concerto: his background as a violinist and his deep connection to opera meet the tradition of Nordic national romanticism. While Symphony No. 2 may be considered conservative for its era, it is abundantly rich in its continuous melodic flow, creating an immediately impactful experience. Anna Agafia (violin), Bogotá Philharmonic Orchestra; Joachim Gustafsson.
