The world’s great conductors are not the only important artistic companions of the Berliner Philharmoniker. It is also always exceptional soloists who perform regularly with the orchestra, providing individual inspiration in their collaboration and opening up stimulating perspectives on the music. The Berliner Philharmoniker enjoy a productive partnership with many of these esteemed companions – with some, even a friendship.

One such friend is Frank Peter Zimmermann. He and the Berliner Philharmoniker have been closely connected ever since their first concert together at the Waldbühne in 1985. His performances have created a common thread between generations of musicians, and hardly any of the conductors who have shaped the orchestra over the years have not worked with this exceptional violinist.

Now, four outstanding snapshots of this intensive musical partnership are being released in an exclusive edition on the orchestra’s own label: the first, in the words of Frank Peter Zimmermann, is the “Mount Everest of violin concertos” the Violin Concerto by Ludwig van Beethoven. Its pioneering characteristic lies above all in the close interlocking of solo part and orchestra. The conductor, demonstrating great stylistic sensitivity, is Daniel Harding.
