Customer Reviews for Concerto No. 23 in G major

Great edition, difficult cadenzas
This edition has wonderful Gingold bowings and fingerings which may seem unusual for some players but achieve great results. Both of the included Joachim and Ysaÿe cadenzas are quite difficult however and require a much higher level of technique than the concerto itself. Intermediate players will find the David cadenzas from the Schirmer edition to be much more playable.

Good piece, bad edition.
Good piece to learn high positions and bowing technique. This edition has some really awkward fingerings, and the articulations are different from some other editions. Not worth the cost difference between this and the cheaper Schirmer edition.
