Rachel Barton Pine, a talented American young violinist, has done one of the best violin recordings I ever listend to, restating the forgotten Franz Clement Violin Concerto in D major (composed in 1805).
Clement was the dedicatee of Beethoven Violin Concerto, and for good!
The concerto is anterior to Beethoven's (which is of 1806) and many lines of it constituted an evident model for Beethoven score.
The last movement instead reminds us of the last movement of a famous Schubert Sonatina, composed by the way in 1816! This cast a good light on the prestige and reputation of Clement's playing and composing amidst his contemporaries now more famous than he is.
This music is particularly beautiful, and this concerto stands between the best ever written for the instrument.
I must say that also the Royal Philharmonic shows at its peak, and the direction by José Serebrier is simply masterful, in keeping a powerful though smooth sound and giving space to all the harmonic resources of both the instruments and the score.
Thank you Miss Barton for this unforgettable performance!

Format: Audio CD
The main attraction of this disc will be the Violin Concerto, not of Beethoven, but of Franz Clément.

Clément (1780-1842) was the premiere performer of Beethoven's Concerto, written in 1806, for a benefit concert given in his favor. It is said that Clément rehearsed directly from the manuscript, which is ascribed to him "par Clemenza pour Clement". Supposedly Clément had a sweet and delicate tone, especially in the high registers, and a technique far removed from the more forceful and assertive Rode-Viotti School. He was also a great prankster. The concert program to that benefit concert announced that he would also play a set of variations with his violin "turned around" (umgekehrt, not clear to me if it meant scroll to shoulder or simply back up with strings facing the ground).

But Clément was also a composer, and Rachel Barton Pine has done a great service to musicology by recording his own Violin Concerto. It was composed a year before Beethoven's, and premiered at the same concert in which Beethoven gave the first fully public performance of his Eroica. It is one of six Clément wrote; most are lost, this one was reissued in 2005 in a modern critical edition by English musicologist Clive Brown, who contributes the highly informative liner notes.

Musicologists love to point the flaws in Beethoven's VC: supposedly, its first movement rambles, the structure is unclear, its melodic material is undistinctive, it is full of scales and tritones that liken it to a book of violin studies. But of course, one needs only to hear the Concerto to recognize that it is a masterpiece, despite - or because of? - its purported flaws.

If still in doubt, the musicologists should listen to Clément's.

A beautiful coupling of the unknown Clement violin concerto and the justly celebrated Beethoven violin concerto. Both are expertly played and enjoyable to listen to. One can see why Beethoven was taken with Clement's ability.
