Elgar’s Violin Concerto with Gil Shaham and David Zinman

Edward Elgar’s Violin Concerto calls for a soloist who can bring its tenderly autumnal, lyrical tone to life without sentimentality. Gil Shaham, who performed the work with the Berliner Philharmoniker and conductor David Zinman in 2008, is such an artist. Also on the programme was Béla Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra from the composer’s last years, which brilliantly alternates between elegy and a defiant will to live.
