Maxim Vengerov Violin


Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France


BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 5 in C minor, opus 67

BRAHMS Violin Concerto in D major, opus 77


The golden century of Germanic music was no doubt the nineteenth century.
Created seventy years apart, Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony (1808) and Brahms’ Violin Concerto (1879) draw their evocative power from the same source: German Romanticism and its fresh aspirations.
Be they a harbinger of the movement as with Beethoven, or a late development as with Brahms, those two works, among the most famous of the repertory, are the epitome of their creators’ genius.
Who better than Maxim Vengerov to interpret Brahms’ Concerto, whose extreme virtuosity at the time baffled violinists? His ample bow, his sparkling musicality and his stunning technique will be given full scope with this both daunting and inspired score.
This outstanding evening will be conducted by Myung Whun Chung, who has strong affinities with this repertoire, as hailed by the press and by audiences alike for many years now.
