Performances of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto

December 06, 2014
 

Beethoven's Violin Concerto premiered in 1806. After a slow start, it became in the 19th century one of the most important concertos in the violin repertory. In the days of 78 rpm recording, great  violinists were eager to get their interpretations on discs. We will hear how Fritz Kreisler, Josef Szigeti and Jascha Heifetz played it.
