Dogged by worsening and devastating hearing loss, in 1806-07 Beethoven began to edge away from his stylistic predecessors, Haydn and Mozart. His Fourth Symphony, flanked by the mighty Third and earth-shaking Fifth, sometimes seems overshadowed, but no lesser figures than Berlioz, Mendelssohn and Schumann admired it hugely. The Violin Concerto, dating from the same years (together with the Coriolan Overture), is widely regarded as one of the greatest of its kind.

Born in Japan, Yume Fujise studied at the Yehudi Menuhin School and University of Arts and Music in Austria, and the Royal College of Music in London, during which time she won the 2014 and 2018 Violin Competitions and the 2015 and 2017 Concerto Competitions. She has appeared live on BBC Radio 3 and is a regular soloist with some of the world’s greatest orchestras.
