CD96181 Maxim Vengerov, Wigmore Hall Recital 05 April 2012

Wigmore Hall Recital Maxim Vengerov - Bach, Handel, Beethoven Broadcast 29 April 2012 BBC Radio 3.

Recorded at Wigmore Hall, London 05 April 2012 Presented by Clemency Burton-Hill

Violinist Maxim Vengerov accompanied by pianist Itamar Golan performs in his first London recital for four years with music by Bach, Handel and Beethoven.

After a sabbatical in which he turned his primary focus to conducting, the Siberian-born violinist makes a hugely anticipated return to the violin and Wigmore Hall with a concert that displays his passion for the Baroque and Romantic repertoire. Starting with his beloved Bach and the unaccompanied D minor Partita - with it's legendary Chaconne, the recital continues through a Handel Sonata, and ends with Beethoven's A major Sonata - known as the 'Kreutzer' because Beethoven dedicated it to violinist Rudolphe Kreutzer. Interestingly, in this concert Vengerov plays the 'Kreutzer' Stradivarius violin which once belonged to the famous soloist, though Kreutzer never played Beethoven's Sonata - considering it "outrageously unintelligible" - Vengerov however does understand the piece and performs it with his trademark brilliance and strength.

J.S. Bach: Partita for solo violin in D minor BWV.1004 Handel: Sonata in D op.1 no.13 Beethoven: Sonata no.9 in A Major op.47 'The Kreutzer' Encore: Brahms: Hungarian Dance No.1 Encore: Wienawski: Scherzo Tarantella Op.16
