BEETHOVEN: Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 61 (Digitally Remastered 3 CD Set)

By Ludwig van Beethoven

Composed by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827). Instrumental Solo Part and 2 CDs.

Item Number: MO.MMOCD3117

ISBN 1596151463.

Beethoven composed this work, his only violin concerto, in 1806, in the same year that he composed the Symphony No. 5, the Rasoumowsky Quartets, and the Piano Concerto No. 4. It was dedicated to Franz Clement, who at its premiere separated the first movement from the second and third movements and fiddled some of his own works in between, with the violin turned upside-down! We can assume that Beethoven never spoke to him again. And needless to say the world took this concerto to its heart, as it has never left the repertoire. A magnificent piece.

Contains a printed solo part and three compact discs featuring the concerto with soloist in digitally remastered stereo; then again in a digital stereo accompaniment version minus the solo violin part.

    a perfect help when learning a concerto, extra + for the slow-tempo alternative. The music is well fingered etc and includes the Kreisler-cadenza (which was a happy surprice) I would definitely recommend this!

    If this is the same as the Emil Kahn led recording which was on a old MMO LP (and I believe it is because advertised as reamastered, be aware that the original had a serious musical flaw. In the first movement, the violin has a trill while the theme is...

    in the woodwinds. After that, the violin takes the theme, but the orchestra appears to be badly edited so that they come in too soon.
