On Aug. 14, John Storgårds, the principal guest conductor of the BBC Philharmonic, did double duty as soloist and conductor in Weill’s Concerto for Violin and Wind Orchestra. (…) one could only admire how he dispatched his dazzling part, nowhere more than in his extended cadenza. (…) It is a tough nut of a piece, but Storgårds underscored its winning dynamism and even found lyrical contours lurking in its pages.
