• The Gift That Keeps On Giving

    Violinist Leonidas Kavakos discusses the endless amount of information in great scores and the responsibility he feels toward them.

    The performance footage of Beethoven's Violin Sonata No. 7 in C Minor with pianist Enrico Pace was taken on March 2, 2014, at Carnegie Hall as part of the  Vienna: City of Dreams festival.


    “The scores just project information all the time. For no matter how many years one can look at them, they still bring something new.” —Leonidas Kavakos
