Brahms: Violin Concerto

Stephen Johnson explores the Violin Concerto by Brahms, one of the most challenging works in the repertoire. Brahms was clearly inspired by his great friend and violin virtuoso Joseph Joachim, and Brahms sought his advice while he composed this concerto.

Stephen Johnson is joined by violinist Matthew Trusler with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Grant Llewellyn.
