Beethoven's Violin Concerto

Thursday, June 4 — Saturday, June 6 2020

Thursday, June 4 — Saturday, June 6 2020
Orchestra Hall
2 hours

Five quiet drum beats. In 1806, a concerto simply did not begin this way—but as with so many elements of music, Beethoven would challenge the status quo. Beethoven’s only violin concerto wraps rhythm in melody, shows off the potential of the instrument, and delights in the technique of the performer.

Brahms spent at least 14 years writing his masterful First Symphony, which at the time of its 1876 premiere prompted the conductor Hans von Bülow to refer to it as “Beethoven’s Tenth,” a sentiment that Brahms resented.

Gluzman's rich, warm timbre comes allied with a smooth, buttery legato to set the heart aflutter, and his willingness to make bold interpretative statements ... made for compelling music making. ”
