Tobias Feldmann

“Tobias Feldmann seized the dramatic potential of the piece, and in Beethoven’s Romance in F found exactly the right rapturous, unspotted lyricism. He was the real discovery of the evening.”

    Poole Lighthouse

    “Last night the Bournemouth Symphony brought it back to life, in a fascinating concert which also included another rarity – a fragment of a violin concerto Beethoven composed as a 20 year-old in Bonn, just before he set off to conquer Vienna […] The solo violinist Tobias Feldmann seized the dramatic potential of the piece, and in Beethoven’s Romance in F found exactly the right rapturous, unspotted lyricism. He was the real discovery of the evening.”

    18 May 18 CD Review: SIBELIUS, RAUTAVAARA The Times

    “Einojuhani Rautavaara’s two-part work (1977) is a colourful late-tonal excursion inspired by his alma mater, Manhattan — obverse of the Finnish landscape. As in the Sibelius, cadenzas are integral, but the soloist is asked to improvise. The lustrous-toned Feldmann does so convincingly.”
    Paul Driver, The Times
