Brahms, Schumann, Van Gogh and Ned Kelly – and letters by them ranging, in the composer's words, 'from private love letters to public manifesto' – are the inspiration for Brett Dean's magnificent violin concerto The Lost Art of Letter Writing. In the work's first MSO performances, the soloist is one of the world's supreme violinists, and the concerto's dedicatee, Frank Peter Zimmermann.
