FRIDAY 9th JULY / 21:30

Roman Theatre

Mikko Franck Music Director
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 Mikko Franck.
