"The Mendelssohn concerto is famous most for its haunting opening theme, but the entire piece is a masterwork. The lyrical beauty of the 2nd movement and the frenetic pace of the 3rd make for a demanding, complete work. A great accomplishment for any player, its a piece that will challenge, but ultimately reward its violinist."
- Catherine Portis, Shar Sr. Apprentice (Violin)

This Carl Fischer edition is edited by Heinrich Dessauer, “after Joseph Joachim.”  Looking at this unusual edition, it seems that most of the fingering and bowing markings must be Joachim’s, while Dessauer has made his textual performance notes in the music (between staves)!  While certainly unusual, Dessauer’s markings make a unique learning tool for this lovely concerto.
