The program also includes Rimsky-Korsakov's "Dubinushka and a Sibelius violin concerto. From the Hollywood Bowl official website:
Sibelius went through three soloists, some nasty reviews, and a major revision of the work before he got his Violin Concerto the way he wanted it, but in that form it has become the most often recorded 20th-century concerto, a beloved favorite of audiences and violinists alike. Between the bristling and brilliant outer movements comes a wondrous slow movement: "mercilessly beautiful," in Finnish poet Lassi Nummi's ecstatic vision of the Concerto.
