Here on the Avenue Montaigne, we admire Paavo Järvi for his elegance and his keen sense of phrasing. For this latest visit with the Philharmonia Orchestra, he has selected three pieces which showcase his talent. We begin with Beethoven and Goethe in tandem for one of the musician’s densest overtures, followed by Sibelius’s lone concerto for violin, in which majestic orchestral passages combine with a virtuosic instrumentals. He rounds of with Tchaikovsky’s “Pathétique”, which demands that every desk of the orchestra in turn deliver its full power.
