Last week I attended a CSO performance of Sibelius' Symphony No. 2 (wonderful) and Esa-Pekka Salonen's Violin Concerto, conducted by Salonen with Leila Josefowicz wailing away on her violin. It was quite something to see and hear, with an impressive assortment of percussion instruments including violin bows played on the edge of the vibraphone and an array of tuned gongs that Karen dubbed the cubicle of gongs. You can see it there on right side of the stage, behind the basses.
