Kavakos and Beethoven: Confident and Elegant

Greek violinist Leonidas Kavakos draws consistent raves from critics. At a recent Berkeley concert, “Kavakos dispatched Beethoven’s motives with confidence and measured elegance,” said San Francisco Classical Voice. “His mastery of the violin is so complete that it gives the impression that nothing stands between him and the composer.”

His recent three-disc recording of Beethoven violin sonatas shows that “he is a fantastically accomplished player,” a reviewer for NPR says. “He brings a shining and sweet tone to these works, but also taut muscularity and a sense of overall structure.”
