It's a bit long and a bit too self-important, but Maw's Concerto for Violin and Orchestra packs moments of unapologetic splendor. The composer distinctly breaks from 20thcentury convention, looking backward to Brahms, and lets the soloist and ensemble have equal time to develop material throughout the piece. Bell leads a narrative without too much pomp throughout and the orchestra revels in the fresh air of New Tonalism.
