Beethoven: Violin Concerto and Symphony No. 6 ‘Pastoral’

Recorded live at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, Germany


Symphony No. 6 in F major, Op. 68 ‘Pastoral’

Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 61, with Isabelle Faust (violin), and the Berliner Philharmoniker, Bernard Haitink conducting.

At the Easter Festival 2015 in Baden Baden the Berliner Philharmoniker were all over Beethoven.

Under the baton of Bernard Haitink, who is regarded as an authority on the music of Beethoven, they played the famous Symphony No. 6 “Pastorale”.

For the Violin Concerto the Berliner Philharmoniker were joined by multi-awarded Isabelle Faust, whose tone captivates in equal measure with “passion, grit, … warmth and sweetness” (The New York Times).

Bernard Haitink won the “Lifetime Achievement” Gramophone Award in 2015.

Isabelle Faust is winner of the Echo Klassik in 2015.

Here is Isabelle Faust performing the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra:
