Episode 49: The Beethoven Violin Concerto's forgotten origins - introducing Franz Clement and his concerto

- Upcoming Events: September 21 - unaccompanied multi-genre recital for Performers of Westchester in New York, September 25 - fundraiser for at-risk youth in Chicago suburbs, September 26 and 28 - Italian baroque music with the Callipygian Players in Chicago

- Inquiries from my Inbox: Mark S. asks, "What other physical conditioning do you do in addition to practicing?"

- Random Musical Thought: Music journalist Ken Smith says, "If playing a piece of music is like walking through the composer's world, then contemporary music offers you a chance to let the composer point the way. If you're particularly adventurous you can even have the composer take you down a fresh path." Conductor Christoph Eschenbach says, "Living composers are not monsters. What we get in the theater, museums and books is new. Why should it be the opposite in music?"


- All about my new CD, "Beethoven and Clement Violin Concertos" with Maestro Jose Serebrier and the Royal Philharmonic. Clement's beautiful concerto was written one year before Beethoven's. The two concertos share the same key, instrumentation, length, aesthetic and many of the exact same figurations. To purchase this CD, please visit www.rachelbartonpine.com.
