Though today it is considered one of the most beloved violin
concertos of all time, the Concerto in D major, Op. 35, was not as initially
successful as Tchaikovsky had hoped. Its
premiere in by Adolph Brodsky in 1881 was blasted by music critic Eduard
Hanslick, who called the concerto “long and pretentious” and said, of the
virtuosic technique required for its performance, that “the violin was not
played but beaten black and blue.”
Fortunately for us, many others, including countless violinists over the
past century, have deemed the concerto more than worthy! It is full of spirit and energy, and includes
one of the loveliest, most haunting slow movements in the violin literature.
In this edition, the violin part has been edited by David Oistrakh and Konstantin Mostras, and the orchestral part reduced for piano. Published by Edition Peters.
Difficulty: ASTA grade 6
NOTE: This item includes a play-along MusicPartner CD. For the Edition Peters version without the CD (edited by Carl Flesch), please see item 1452 106.
