Beethoven's Violin Concerto, in which Simone Lamsma joins Juanjo Mena and the BBC Philharmonic, features in the second half of this evening's concert. It is preceded by two works inspired by Beethoven's music: Schubert's sparkling Second Symphony, written whilst he was still in his teens, and Colin Matthews's Grand Barcarolle which takes as its starting point an imaginary slow movement to a Beethoven Symphony.
