Brahms' Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 77 composed by Johannes Brahms (1833-1897). For violin. Instrumental Solo Part and CD. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3108).
Little need be said for what may be the most beautiful violin concerto ever put to paper. With its soaring melodies, broad lyricism beyond compare, this masterwork is pure magic. An essential for every serious violinist. Brahms dedicated this piece to Joseph Joachim, the famous violinist, who contributed much to its solo part. An often technically difficult masterwork, but well worth the effort to learn it, it is a magnificently rewarding concerto.
Contains a printed solo part and a compact disc featuring the concerto in split-channel stereo with the violinist on the right channel; then again in a stereo accompaniment version minus the solo violin part.
