Beethoven’s Violin Concerto
Two years after the premiere of the Eroica Symphony, his friend Franz Clement, concertmaster and conductor of the Vienna Opera, commissioned Beethoven to compose a violin concerto. Thanks to this we are in front of the only concert by the composer for this solo instrument. The programme is completed with Schubert’s Tragic, a symphony that begins precisely with a small tribute to Beethoven.
