The Music

Beethoven: Violin Concerto
Robust yet serene at moments. The piece almost fell into obscurity until renowned violinist Joseph Joachim played it to wild success—at only twelve years of age.

Brahms: Symphony No. 4
Powerful and rich in complexity. Brahms payed tribute to Bach with a theme in the last movement—and gave it 30 variations.
