The experts were impressed by his recording of Brahms' Violin Concerto. Now Leonidas Kavakos dedicates himself to this pinnacle of violin literature in a concert with the Vienna Philharmonic. The composer had hesitated for a long time before writing it, since he himself was a pianist. Instead, his friend, the virtuoso violinist Joseph Joachim, was at his side as an advisor. Less frequently heard are the symphonies of Carl Nielsen, who was himself a violinist. »Carl Nielsen, Denmark's greatest son, was a born symphony composer«, Jean Sibelius wrote of his colleague in 1953. Laid out in two traditional symphonic movements, however, his Fifth proves to be anything but conventional upon closer inspection.
