The "Symphony no. 2" for violin and orchestra' was written
in 1978. The work was not a concerto, but a big lyric melody, where
the violin and the orchestra are closely intertwined in a game of
tones that is in itself an aspect of this melody.
This fusion is particularly obvious in all the medium part of this
work, quite bitter and violent, alternating desperate jumps and sudden
However, at the beginning, the violin is clearly out of synch, with
a long phrase above the orchestra's least lively brass.
The "Symphony no. 2", which is continuous, concludes
with a violin line, evocative of the first singing in a dialogue with
some soloist instruments, above an orchestra at first squeezed in
the medium, then invading all the sonic space, from the extremely
bass tones to the extremely acute. The violin culminates above this
chromatic density, ending the piece in a climate of faraway farewell.
