All this month, we have woven major Beethoven works on PTB, as we complete our Beethoven project on Youtube consisting of all his symphonies and concertos, along with some other orchestral works (most notably overtures and masses). As an ice-breaker, I thought I would start with an overture I featured on a recent Friday montage, performed here by Otto Klemperer and the Philharmonia Orchestra:

Earlier this year, I posted my favourite performance of Beethoven's violin concerto: that by Christian Ferras with Karl Bohm and the Berlin Philharmonic. I found some others on YouTube, including one by the former concertmaster of the Vienna Philharmonic, Wolfgang Schneiderhan recorded in a radio performance with the RAI Symphony Orchestra under Sergiu Celibidache:

As for the "triple" concerto, one of the lauded recordings is that from 1969 by Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic backing up the trio of Russians formed by Oistrakh, Richter and Rostropovich:

The two romances for violin and orchestra complete today's set. They are performed by the aforementioned David Oistrakh and Jascha Heifitz:

Happy Listening!
