Susanna Mälkki & Frank Peter Zimmermann

Thu 14/09/2017 19:00 - 21:00
Tickets: 36.00-7.00 €


Beethoven did everything bigger and more spectacularly than his predecessors – even at the risk of disapproval by critics. His violin concerto was ahead of its time and initially raised eyebrows, but over the years this scepticism was replaced by admiration and the respect of all violinists who tackled the piece. Frank Peter Zimmermann returns to the source of all Romantic virtuoso concertos while continuing his close collaboration with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra.
