See Joseph Swensen play the Brahms Violin Concerto Joseph Swensen's return to the violin, as a soloist, was marked by two performances of Brahms' Violin Concerto with the London Mozart Players in February this year. Video footage of one of the concerts, at St John Smith's Square, is now available. Please go to Joseph's video page or visit the video page on Victoria Rowsell Artist Management. Swensen also performed Ernst's fiendishly difficult Last Rose of Summer as his encore: jaw-droppingly virtuosic! This footage is 100% live and unedited.
