Brahms - Symphony No.3; Violin Concerto – Zehetmair, Dohnanyi, Cleveland Orchestra






Review:
Thomas Zehetmair was born into a musical family in Salzburg, studied violin with his father at the Mozarteum and made his debut, at the age of 16, at the 1977 Salzburg Festival. Now a soloist of international standing, he is a regular guest with orchestras inclusing the Chicago, Philadelphia and Boston Symphony Orchestras, the Berlin, Munich and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Concertgebouw Orkest Amsterdam, and the Gewandhaus Orchester Lepizig. One of the most significant violinists of his generation, Thomas Zehetmair is now respected internationally as a violinist, conductor and chamber musician. In addition to his commitment to the standardimage violin repertoire, Thomas Zehetmair dedicates much of his time to contemporary music. He has given a number of premieres including Holliger’s violin concerto (written for Zehetmair) and the concertos of James Dillon and Hans Jurgen von Bose. He has recorded almost the entire violin repertoire. In 1994 Thomas Zehetmair formed the Zehetmair Quartet with whom he has recorded string quartets by Hartmann and Bartok. Their recording of the Schumann quartets received the "Diapason D’Or de L’Annee" and the "Gramophone Recording of the Year" in 2003
