“Matheson’s concerto is a supercharged showpiece for virtuoso violinist and orchestra that connects with the listener on a visceral as well as intellectual level. It keeps the soloist extremely busy as he navigates a maze of vivid, colorful orchestral effects.” — Chicago Tribune

Commissioned by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, James Matheson’s Violin Concerto was premiered by CSO violinists Baird Dodge in December 2011. CSO musicians are also heard on Matheson’s String Quartet, recorded live in concert November 2015, described in the Orange County Register as “an impressive piece of work . . . brimming with ideas” and “beautifully orchestrated . . . to create one wondrous color after another.”
