Austrian violinist Thomas Zehetmair regularly pulls off the feat of both playing and conducting the Beethoven Violin Concerto. And he does that with a little help from his friends.
Thomas tells KING FM’s Dave Beck how he calls on musicians from inside the Seattle Symphony to help with a few conducting duties along the way. And the story of a little-known and eccentric cadenza that Beethoven wrote for his violin concerto. Thomas Zehetmair is back in Seattle this week after a critically acclaimed debut with the orchestra in 2018.
