This Sunday, a recording of his live return to London :

Recorded at Wigmore Hall, London

Violinist Maxim Vengerov accompanied by pianist Itamar Golan performs
in his first London recital for four years with music by Bach, Handel
and Beethoven. From the BBC :

" After a sabbatical in which he turned his primary focus to
conducting, the Siberian-born violinist makes a hugely anticipated
return to the violin and Wigmore Hall with a concert that displays his
passion for the Baroque and Romantic repertoire. Starting with his
beloved Bach and the unaccompanied D minor Partita - with it's
legendary Chaconne, the recital continues through a Handel Sonata, and
ends with Beethoven's A major Sonata - known as the 'Kreutzer' because
Beethoven dedicated it to violinist Rudolphe Kreutzer. Interestingly,
in this concert Vengerov plays the 'Kreutzer' Stradivarius violin
which once belonged to the famous soloist, though Kreutzer never
played Beethoven's Sonata - considering it "outrageously
unintelligible" - Vengerov however does understand the piece and
performs it with his trademark brilliance and strength. "

J.S. Bach: Partita for solo violin in D minor BWV.1004

Handel: Sonata in D op.1 no.13

Beethoven: Sonata no.9 in A Major op.47 'The Kreutzer'
