Beethoven´s Violin Concerto

Master violinist James Ehnes plays one of the repertoire’s most timeless and appreciated violin concertos

The first violin concerto to begin with timpani? Presumably, Beethoven knew what he was doing and imitation was not part of the process.

Inspiration and craftsmanship must have flowed in perfect harmony when he composed the work. The first movement is 20 minutes long –  and not a second too long – and with a matching trio and finale, it is a real classic, especially in the hands of the fabulously musical James Ehnes.
