the music

The fruit of a long friendship between Brahms and the great violinist Joseph Joachim, the Violin Concerto in D majorwas received with rapturous enthusiasm that has remained undiminished ever since. A career-defining work of legendary violinists, it has been played to rave reviews by Maxim Vengerov since his dazzling debut.

An autobiographical confession, Tchaikovsky's SymphonyPathétique’will forever keep its secrets through a programme that the author did not want to reveal. The expressive force of this work of testament rises above the personal anecdote to reach greater realms.
