Francesca Dego Violin
‘There are and have been many princes. But there is only one Beethoven!’ Ludwig van Beethoven was a visionary, a hero, an iconoclast and a superstar. But above all, he was a revolutionary – and when you hear his Seventh Symphony in full, headlong flight, you might feel like punching the air. Cornelius Meister unleashes it in this spectacular performance. First, though, comes an operatic drama of slavery and freedom before the superb Italian violinist Francesca Dego takes the spotlight in Mozart’s feistiest violin concerto.
