    The German musician Kolja Blacher is a man of few words. He expresses himself by picking up his Guarneri del Gesù violin of 1730. And he works hard with the orchestra, when he is also called to be the conductor. He is returning to the ORT after 10 years, precisely in this double role, which in recent times – now that he has turned sixty – is the one he likes the most. He, son of the famous composer Boris Blacher, a pupil of Dorothy DeLay’s Juilliard School in New York (who taught a host of great violinists, including Itzhak Perlman), was first violin of the Berlin Philharmonic in the 1990s, at the time of Claudio Abbado. Together with the ORT, he is working on a pillar of the violin repertoire, Beethoven’s Concerto Op .61. A score dated 1806 which, at the time, the public did not appreciate. It was brought into circulation several years after the composer’s death, around the middle of the century, with the interpretation of the great violinist Joseph Joachim under the direction of Felix Mendelssohn and then that of Robert Schumann. The other work on the programme, Symphony No. 3 called the “Scottish”, belongs to Mendelssohn.
