About the album

In history Beethoven's Violinconcerto always seems to have had opponents and advocates, but a fact is that this piece has many layers which become clearer when musicians dive into it and give us, the audience, back a profound understanding of it in their performance. This is what violinist Liza ferschtman does. She shows us her vision of this masterwork in a sublime and radiating performance which touches you to the bone. The chemistry between her as a soloist and the orchestra is very clear and beautiful indeed. The exquisite melodies of the Romances are a perfect addition to the concert.

Dear Wouter,
Thanks for your enthousiastic comment. About the cadenza Liza plays. It is the 'original' cadenza in the Beethoven Violinconcerto.
That is: the cadenza that Beethoven himself composed for the pianoversion. The arrangement for violin was composed by Wolfgang Schneiderhahn.

We hope we have informed you fully now?

Kind regards, Challenge Records International

Hello, I am a site reviewer for SA-CD.net (pseudonym Geohominid) and have purchased the Beethoven violin concerto for review. Please could you tell me what was the score version used? Many of the versions in present-day study scores are based on early corrupt editions. Many thanks!
