Beethoven’s Violin Concerto ushers us into that rare space where every gesture is essential and meaningful, from the anticipatory taps on the timpani to the ascendant arpeggios of the finale. Thomas Zehetmair serves as both conductor and soloist in this spellbinding concerto, bringing what the BBC hails as “a virtuoso technique married to a musical mind that won’t take anything for granted.”
