Beethoven: Violin Concerto & Romances!
Here’s yet another young European violinist that is joining the scene of fine performers on this new CD:
- Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 61
- Romances Nos. 1 & 2 for violin and orchestra
Liza Ferschtman (violin), and the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Jan Willem de Vriend.
The three major works that Beethoven wrote for violin and orchestra are the Concerto in D Major, and the two Romances. These are performed on this Hybrid SACD by the outstanding young violinist Liza Ferschtman and the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Jan Willem de Vriend.
Born to Russian parents, Netherlands-based violinist Liza Ferschtman is recognized as one of the most significant young artist. In recent seasons Liza Ferschtman has performed with all the major Dutch orchestras, including the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Amsterdam Sinfonietta and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, Residentie Orchestra, and the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, and has worked with conductors such as Leonard Slatkin, Jaap van Zweden, Thierry Fisher, and Christoph von Dohnányi.
In 2006 Liza Ferschtman received the Dutch Music Award 2006, which is the highest distinction awarded to musicians in the Netherlands.
After a memorable premiere in 1806, nothing was heard of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto. Then, 38 years later, in 1844, Felix Mendelssohn conducted a hugely successful performance of the concert during a London Philharmonic Society concert with the then 14-year-old Joseph Joachim as soloist.
