‘Dialogue' is probably the best term to describe the coupling of these two famous violin concertos. While addressing the loved one he has lost, Berg sets his final work on the threshold between tradition and revolution, between tonal music and the nascent ‘serial' aesthetic; a century earlier, Beethoven had deconstructed formal Classicism to raise the solo violin to the status of a subject in its own right. This passionate exchange between the ‘soul' of the violin and the ‘chorus' of the orchestra is the fruit of an exciting meeting between two of the finest artists of our time.
