Paavo Jarvi Conducts Britten

For years Britten's Violin Concerto was virtually unknown and unplayed. But in the past few years more and more leading soloists are taking up the piece. I am convinced it is a masterpiece and good enough to stand with the classics of the genre. Here is an excellent performance featuring Janine Jansen with Paavo Jarvi and the Frankfurt Radio Symphony. I have lost track of how many orchestras Jarvi now heads but there are many of them. And his conducting continues to grow in stature.
