Beethoven Symphony no. 4
Beethoven Violin Concerto
Nicola Benedetti violin
A musician always confounding expectations, violinist Nicola Benedetti visits the Abu Dhabi Festival for the first time by kind invitation of the Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Foundation.
She performs a Beethoven programme of pure unvarnished musicality.
Sandwiched between the complex Third Symphony and the iconic Fifth, Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony is a gentler, more intimate affair that harks back to older music and shows the distinct influence of Haydn.
Written in the same year as the Fourth Symphony, Beethoven’s only Violin Concerto was one of the first pieces written for the instrument on a large scale.
Enjoy this exploration of the variety of Beethoven’s music an artist of international distinction.
