Following from the concerto list, name your top 5-10 violin concertos!
I'm trying to expand my violin listening and there is such a deep goldmine of amazing violin concertos, I know there will be a lot of great new ones to me listed here.
In my listening so far, and I'm forgetting some:Edward Elgar
- Violin ConcertoIgor Stravinsky
- Violin Concerto Ludwig van Beethoven
- Violin ConcertoJ.S. Bach
- Concerto for Two ViolinsFelix Mendelssohn
- Violin ConcertoHenryk Wienawski
- Violin Concerto No. 2Erich Wolfgang Korngold
- Violin ConcertoPhillip Glass
- Violin Concerto
(I just recently came to this one and it really got me!)
There are some egregious omissions in my list I know. The Sibelius should be here as much as I love his other works, but I haven't really connected with it yet. I did see video of Christian Ferras playing it on YouTube though and it was really astonishing.
Also, who do you like for some these ultra-famous violin extravaganzas? The violinists are a veritable sea of goodness. (Historical performances welcomed for recs!)
