Jack Liebeck on the Brahms and Schoenberg violin concertos

The British violinist talks about a very rare, if not unique, coupling of two major violin concertos, and why he put them together on the same recording

Jack Liebeck today releases a recording on Orchid Classics coupling the violin concertos by Brahms and Schoenberg, both works that have strong personal connections. He's joined on the new album by the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Andrew Gourlay.

Jack talks to James Jolly about why he put the two works together, how he sees their relationship and the challenges of learning and playing the Schoenberg concerto.
