Alban Berg’s Violin Concerto

Gulbenkian Orchestra / Lorenzo Viotti / Isabelle Faust

Event Slider

Celebrated as one of most brilliant contemporary violinists, Isabelle Faust is recognised among her peers for the absolute rigour she puts into the preparation of each performance, undertaking an in-depth study of the historical context, the most appropriate instrument for a given piece and the information available about the composers and their work. The passion she then adds to the notes is magnified by this careful prior reflection, leading her to exceptional moments such as her recording of Alban Berg’s Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, a “masterpiece (…) that climbs ever higher, transporting us to the limits of heaven”, as she described in an interview.
