Beethoven’s Violin Concerto
Other sessions:17 January, 21:00
Isabelle Faust’s highly praised interpretations are enriched by a laborious study of the original historical context of each work, with a view to a reading as authentic as knowledge allows. “It’s much easier to get an image of what the composer may think,” Faust told The Guardian about the information she seeks to surround herself with. A première at Gulbenkian Music and an occasion to admire a violinist whose sound, according to the New York Times,” has passion, grit and electricity but also a disarming warmth and sweetness that can unveil the music’s hidden strains of lyricism.”
