Sibelius' Violin Concerto – «Classic of the Classics»
In our new series «Classic of the Classics» we recommend four special highlights of the 2022/23 season.
On 21 and 22 September 2022, Hilary Hahn will perform Sibelius' Violin Concerto under the baton of Paavo Järvi. It is one of the most popular violin concertos of the 20th century; late romantic emphasis is combined with Scandinavian expansiveness – and with high technical demands.
George-Cosmin Banica, our 2nd concertmaster, plays an excerpt from this violin concerto for you now and tells you what makes the concerto one of his very great favourites.
