Leonid Kogan: Beethoven Violin Concerto (1966)

Leonid Kogan [1924–1982] and the Orchestre national de l’ORTF (since 1975 named Orchestre national de France), conducted by Louis de Froment, perform the Beethoven Violin Concerto in D major, opus 61, at Maison de la Radio’s Salle Olivier Messiaen, in Paris, France, in 1966. Ludwig van Beethoven completed this piece in 1806. Kogan, whose playing is beautiful, is among the many talented Jewish musicians that came out of the Former Soviet Union, which had a way of training musicians to achieve a rare combination of both technical and artistic virtuosity.
