    Iván Fischer and Vilde Frang present Bartók’s Violin Concerto No. 1

    An unhappy love affair inspired Béla Bartók’s Violin Concerto No. 1, which is characterised by extraordinary tenderness and emotional depth. The soloist is Vilde Frang, who made her debut with the Philharmoniker at the 2016 European Concert and impressed the audience with her passionate, singing tone. Conductor Iván Fischer also presents excerpts from Mendelssohn’s magical, gossamer-light music for A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

    This European Concert from 2016 takes us to the beautiful Baroque church in the Norwegian mining town of Røros. Simon Rattle conducts works including Beethoven’s revolutionary Eroica and Mendelssohn’s noble, songful Violin Concerto in E Minor. The soloist, playing a home fixture, so to speak, is the virtuoso, sensitive and charming Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang.
