Haydn’s ViolinConcerto No. 2 in G major (HobVIIa:4) is a great example of Classical period style. Full of simple yet lovely melodies, the piecerequires brilliant intonation and lightness of sound at the same time. Perfect for advancing players who arecomfortable with shifting, some double-stops, and the occasional four-notechord.
