Suk Serenade for strings Op. 6
Schumann Violin Concerto
Beethoven Symphony No. 2 Op. 36
Norwegian-born Vilde Frang first attracted attention aged 12, and for two decades has enjoyed a dazzling career as a soloist, playing with some of the most prestigious orchestras. Here, she tackles Schumann’s only violin concerto. This work suffered a strange fate as it was not premiered until a century after the composer’s death and then became a belated jewel in the crown of the romantic repertoire. All good things come to those who wait. In 1803, critics described Beethoven’s Symphony No.2 as “a hideous wounded dragon which refuses to die” - an opinion which we may be able to revise completely as we listen to this symphony conducted by Lars Vogt as the climax to this concert.
