Beethoven's works for violin and orchestra

We are extremely proud and happy to announce the release of our CD with the fabulous violinist Midori for the Warner Classics label. You can now have a look at the cover and listen to audio clips on their website. Recorded at the beginning of March when the very first concerts were cancelled due to the pandemic, this recording takes on a particularly symbolic meaning.
