The destiny of the violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann began to take shape from an early age. Growing up in a family of musicians, Sundays were spent listening to or playing chamber music at home. At the age of 15 or 16, a friend persuaded him to send a recording of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor to some conductors of the calibre of L. Maazel, W. Sawallisch and D. Barenboim. That was all it took for him to start performing on stage with internationally renowned masters. In these concerts he collaborates with Jukka-Pekka Saraste, who returns to direct the Gulbenkian Orchestra about a year and a half since his last time.
