Temirkanov, Kavakos: Beethoven, Prokofiev powered by medici.tv, the leading online channel for classical music.
This concert comes to you live from the Annecy Classic Festival, courtesy of Medici.tv. JDCMB is delighted to share this streaming. Leonidas Kavakos playing the Beethoven Violin Concerto promises to be an artistic experience that everyone should sample, and the concert closes with music from Prokofiev's ballet score Romeo and Juliet.
Amusingly enough, the concert's programme appears originally to have contained Bruckner's Symphony No.4, according to the Annecy website. I promise I have had no part in this alteration!
Enjoy the concert. Dear Medici, thank you for sharing the streaming.

Free Kavakos? Why are they holding him?
OK, just kidding. But you can indeed watch and listen to the fabulous Greek violinist Leonidas Kavakos for free on JDCMB tomorrow. We are live-streaming a concert from the Annecy Classic Festival, in a webcast shared exclusively with us by Medici.tv. Kavakos is playing the Beethoven Violin Concerto and Yuri Temirkanov conducts the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra. The second half consists of something rather special that may surprise regular readers of JDCMB.
The performance starts at 21:00 French time, so in the UK it will begin at 8pm and in New York 3pm. Further west, I'm sure you can work it out for yourself.
Fingers crossed that I've got all the technology correctly set up...
