Johannes Brahms: Violin Concerto in D major
Discovering Masterpieces of Classical Music
Experience and enjoy, in a completely new way, the great works of classical music, from the Baroque to the modern period, thanks to a new series of audio-visual concert guides, "Masterpieces of Classical Music."
In the eyes of his contemporaries, Johannes Brahms's Violin concerto was so different from everything that had come before that, after the premiere, a critic stated that it wasn't a concerto, but a "symphony with violin obligato." In an interview, the famous American violinist Gil Shaham, who has performed the work, introduces viewers to its lovely melodies and motifs and seeks to disprove the famous criticism. Wolfgang Sandberger, the director of the German Brahms Institute in Lübeck, analyzes the work and describes its genesis.
