Maxim Vengerov plays Bach, Beethoven, Brahms and Wieniawski
Maxim Vengerov is a well-known musician. Following his debut at the age of five, he has enjoyed a successful career throughout the world and, over the past quarter-century, has been internationally celebrated as a violinist, teacher and conductor.
Here are a few excerpts of Mr. Vengerov’s recordings featured at Spotify, under “Hank’s Vengerov”
This CD features Mr. Vengerov’s program from his concert in London:
Bach, J S:
- Partita for solo violin No. 2 in D minor, BWV1004
- Violin Sonata No. 9 in A major, Op. 47 ‘Kreutzer’
- Hungarian Dance No. 1 in G minor
transcr. Joseph Joachim
- Scherzo-Tarantelle in G minor, Op. 16
Performed by Maxim Vengerov (violin) and Itamar Golan (piano)
Mr. Vengerov’s return to perform at London’s Wigmore Hall in April 2012 will be remembered as one of the great concerts of the London music season. This music is featured on this CD.
With a warm, rich tone, he created a personal and intimate atmosphere from the very beginning of Bach’s Partita No. 2 in D minor, which opened the recital.
In the second selection, Vengerov was joined by his recital partner, Mr. Itamar Golan, in a wonderful performance of Beethoven’s ‘Kreutzer’ sonata.
Two encores were presented: Hungarian Dance No. 1 by Brahms, and Scherzo-Tarantella by Wienawski.
