The sun comes out in Lili Boulanger’s lively tone poem, and lyrical feelings bloom in music by Samuel Barber and Sergei Rachmaninoff.

D’un matin de printemps is one of the few glimpses we have of Lili Boulanger’s compositional genius, a sparkling miniature that leaves a lasting impression of spring.

The emotional sincerity of Samuel Barber’s lyrical Violin Concerto cuts to the heart, its nervy third movement building up to a burst of feeling. And passion reigns in Rachmaninoff’s opulent Second Symphony. Its third movement contains some of the most beautiful music he ever wrote.

‘I try to put my whole being into my music,’ says Janine Jansen, one of the world’s most expressive violinists. Here she evokes the raptures of Barber’s concerto with stirring support from Sir Antonio Pappano and the LSO.
