This volume presents three of the most popular violin concertos, published together in one volume for the first time:
Ludwig van Beethoven: Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D Major, Op. 61
Felix Mendelssohn: Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in E Minor, Op. 64
Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky, Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D Major, Op. 35
Beethoven's masterwork explored the dimensions of the classical concerto and established the form for violin concertos ever after. Grove's Dictionary calls Mendelssohn's composition, "one of the most significant works in the genre." And Tchaikovsky's concerto is regarded as one of his greatest works.
Reproduced from authoritative editions, this sturdy, inexpensive volume is a perfect addition to the libraries of any serious violinist, student, and musicologist. It is also an excellent way for music lovers to fully appreciate the concerto form and the powerful intelligence of three masterworks.
