Leonidas Kavakos: Beethoven

Part of Classical Season 2020/21

Admire one of Beethoven's favourites of his own works with the Philharmonia Orchestra.

Leonidas Kavakos recorded Beethoven's Violin Concerto in 2019, and is touring the world playing and directing it in the 2020/21 season.

'This is my tribute, my paying my respects to the master... this huge mind and huge heart, who gave us such incredible music,' he says.

One of today's most respected musicians, Kavakos is at the height of his powers as a violinist and increasingly in demand as a conductor.

He pairs Beethoven's glorious Violin Concerto, a work he plays with 'silvery agility and resonant warmth' (Boston Globe), with the Seventh Symphony.

The work has entranced listeners ever since its first performance. From the melancholy grandeur of the slow movement to the swirling energy of the finale, every moment of this masterpiece confirms Beethoven's command of his art.
