A powerful, deeply moving philosophical statement, this landmark twenty-first century violin concerto explores mankind's search to ever further understand the cosmos and our place within it. Those who love the Samuel Barber and Alban Berg masterpieces, the lucidity of Witold Lutoslawsky and the iconoclasm of Krzysztof Penderecki, will find themselves at home amid Sosnowski's masterful violin writing. With his hallmark lyrical woodwind passages, heroic brass treatments, and opulent string and ensemble writing, Sosnowski brings neo-Romanticism into a new century with stunning originality and uncompromising musical honesty. Composed in a massive, single-movement framework, Beyond the Event Horizon
breaks all the rules, but triumphantly brings us new ones that inspire, elevate and ennoble the human condition.
