Masterworks 5: Beethoven's Violin Concerto

  • Overview

    The noble grandeur of Sibelius 7, plus – Paul Huang joins the Symphony for Beethoven’s transcendent Violin Concerto in D Major

    Perhaps the first Romantic concerto ever written, Beethoven’s transcendent Violin Concerto in D Major pushed the limits of the art form. Paul Huang, recipient of the prestigious 2015 Avery Fisher Career Grant, is renowned for his intensely expressive music making; hear him play this lyrical work with the Des Moines Symphony in a program which features the noble grandeur and epic journey of Sibelius’s Seventh Symphony and Nielsen’s wonderfully ebullient Overture to Masquerade.
