Violin video: Frank Peter Zimmermann on Alban Berg’s Violin Concerto
In 2013 we are presenting a new video interview with a violin expert and performer every month.
“I never tire of it.” All those who hear Frank Peter Zimmermann talking about Alban Berg’s Violin Concerto will notice that it is a work that is very close to his heart. So it is extremely fitting that this outstanding 20th century violin concerto is discussed by one of the most renowned violinists of our time.
In an interview that lasts almost 14 minutes, Zimmermann outlines both in words and on the violin why Berg’s composition is not merely a violin concerto but a work of art in the true sense of the word. A pièce de résistance to round off our series of violin videos!
