Beethoven's Violin Concerto
Forget everything you thought you knew about English music, because Vaughan Williams’ Fourth Symphony is the white-hot vision of an angry prophet. It shocked audiences in 1935 and it’s every bit as gripping today. It’s hard to think of a more perfect contrast than Beethoven’s radiant Violin Concerto: deep serenity and endless song, played today by Augustin Hadelich – Musical America’s 2018 “Instrumentalist of the Year”.
