Midori & Brahms
Throughout the history of music, many of the concerts for solo instruments have been written with some virtuoso in mind. This is the case of the Brahms Violin Concerto, a work written for his friend and violinist Joseph Joachim, from whom he asked for advice, and which contains many passages with great technical difficulty. The concert programme is completed by Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, a work with one of the most wonderful melodies in the history of music.
