Brahms: Violin Concerto, Dvorak: Symphony No 9
Genre: classical music
Conductor: Claudio Abbado
Viewers of this concert, broadcast on TV right across Europe, were inspired to see Claudio Abbado so relaxed, gesticulating so emphatically. This was the last time in his twelve years as the orchestra’s artistic director that he conducted a European Concert.
The Berlin Philharmonic played 'elegantissimo', with magnificent solos, mastering the ensemble passages with supreme ease. Their interpretation of Dvořák's Ninth Symphony could not have been more sophisticated.
Gil Shaham, one of the greatest violinists of our time, delivers a formidable interpretation of the complex and demanding Brahms Violin Concerto, already having recorded this concerto with Abbado in 2000.
