"The Beethoven Violin Concerto is considered one of the top concertos ever written for any instrument. Its acceptance as a major violin concerto was gradual, but it is now recognized as one of Beethovens greatest achievements. It is a remarkable piece in that it is not as note-heavy as other concertos such as the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto, but is much more musically demanding. It reminds the audience more of a symphony with a violin solo where the soloist and the orchestra are equal partners than a piece designed to showcase virtuosity. The melodies are simple (though not easy), with a soaring, free opening in the violin after a lengthy orchestra introduction. The second movement is a moment of repose before the bright, cheerful Rondo. The beauty of this concerto comes from its simplicity, elegance, voicing within the orchestra, and an overall feeling of joy. Cadenzas for the work have been written by several notable violinists, including Joachim, however this version does not include cadenzas." -Sarah Cranor, Shar Apprentice (Violin)
