The dazzling superstar violinist Leila Josefowicz comes to the Gardner Museum with what promises to be a thrilling recital. Her program comprises both the narcotic opulence of Szymanowski (his “retellings” of Greek myths) and Debussy’s ravishing last major work. These masterpieces are balanced by two keen-eared views on modernism–written by composers born 77 years and 250 miles apart on the Baltic.
