About the programme

Beethoven’s only violin concerto is one of the best-known works of its genre and the most significant concerto in the violin repertoire altogether. Time and again artists undertake new interpretative approaches to this masterpiece. One such artist is the Munich violinist Julia Fischer, the winner of many coveted prizes, including the Beethoven Ring. The last time she stood on the Gasteig concert stage with the BRSO was in 2009, when she played Prokofiev’s First Concerto under Mariss Jansons. Besides Beethoven, the American conductor-composer Michael Tilson Thomas will also conduct Aaron Copland’s Third Symphony. Leonard Bernstein, who gave the work its European première, maintained that “the symphony has become an American monument, like the Washington Monument or the Lincoln Memorial”, and called it “the greatest American symphony ever written”.
