Nicola Benedetti plays Beethoven.

Best known as an excitingly unconventional violinist, Pekka Kuusisto takes up the baton for this all-Beethoven concert with the Philharmonia Orchestra. They're joined by one of Britain's best-loved violinists, the multi award-winning Nicola Benedetti in the Violin Concerto. As you might expect with Beethoven, he wrote a concerto on a hitherto unprecedented symphonic scale which has long been de rigueur in every violinist's repertoire and an audience favourite. The concert ends with Symphony No. 2. Although it comes from one of the most miserable times of a life which had more than its fair share of misery, it's among Beethoven's most exuberantly playful and joyous works. Recorded in November at the Royal Festival Hall and introduced by Martin Handley. Philharmonia Orchestra Nicola Benedetti (violin) Pekka Kuusisto (conductor).

Simon Rattle conducts the LSO.

Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra perform a strings concert with and for freelance musicians, celebrating the vital role freelancers play in Britain's musical life and drawing attention to the impact the last year of pandemic has had on the freelance profession. Government restrictions have reduced the number of concerts and necessitated smaller numbers of socially distanced musicians on stage, so this configuration of the Orchestra made up of 40 LSO members and 30 freelance 'extras' symbolises both a commitment to freelancers and a hope for a better future. The concert marks the first time a large number of extras have played with the LSO since March 2020. The commitment to freelancers is at the foundation of the LSO, formed over a century ago by a renegade group of musicians whose freelance status in the Queen's Hall Orchestra was threatened: to this day, the LSO is a collective of freelance musicians. The concert, recorded last month at LSO St Luke's and introduced by Martin Handley, includes two 20th-century classics of the string repertoire, Barber's moving Adagio and Vaughan William's other-worldly, ecstatic Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis. Grieg: Holberg Suite (Prelude). Puccini: Crisantemi. Barber: Adagio. Herrmann: Psycho (Suite from the film). Vaughan Williams: Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis. London Symphony Orchestra, Simon Rattle (conductor).

Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.

A 2014 performance from Amsterdam, with Mariss Jansons conducting the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Beethoven's Piano Concerto No1 in C and Bruckner's Symphony No 9 in D minor. The great Latvian-born conductor enjoyed a decade as the orchestra's chief chief conductor and he is heard here in one of the great Romantic works for which he was held in such high regard. He brings a luminous grandeur to Anton Bruckner's Ninth Symphony, which ends with one of the most poignant adagios in all music. The concert opens with Lars Vogt playing Beethoven in classical mode: all grace and charm and this famous orchestra matches his every move. Beethoven: Piano Concerto No 1 in C, Op 15; Bruckner: Symphony No 9 in D minor. Lars Vogt (piano), Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Mariss Jansons (conductor).
