Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale Viennese Pivot

Classicism at the Crossroads

Come away to Vienna in the dawning decades of the 19th century, as late fruits of Classicism ripen alongside early blossoms of Romanticism. Violin virtuoso and impresario Franz Clement has composed a violin concerto that will inspire Beethoven to pen one of his own for Clement the next year. Young Franz Schubert is poised on the threshold of his supple mature style as Vienna verges towards full-flourishing Romanticism. Guest soloist Rachel Barton Pine was the first in the world to record the Clement Violin Concerto, and will reprise her deeply-researched performance with Philharmonia in a perfect match of historically-informed sensibilities.
