Ehnes Plays Beethoven

The extraordinary James Ehnes—“a violinist in a class of his own” (The Times)—performs one of the supreme treasures of the repertoire, Beethoven’s Violin Concerto. Conductor Laureate Sir Andrew Davis describes Emilie LeBel’s work as “music that reflects her intelligence and audaciousness,” and he leads one of her newest compositions. And a lovable rascal romps his way through life, and thumbs his nose at the establishment in Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks. Rendered with Strauss’s trademark brilliance and flair, and providing a spectacular showpiece for the entire Orchestra, you’d be hard-pressed to find any music more fun.
