BRUCH Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor, op. 25

By Max Bruch

Composed by Max Bruch (1838-1920). Instrumental Solo Part and CD. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3100).

Item Number: MO.MMOCD3100

ISBN 1596150971.

Max Bruch's sumptuous Romantic masterpiece has remained an audience favorite since it was published in 1868. Its dedicatee, the great violinist Joseph Joachim, had considerable input and, as in the Brahms concerto, his contributions add to its unstoppable lustre. In typical three-movement form, it is a spectacularly lush concerto of the highest order and its intoxicating spell usually takes a firm grip on even the most jaded cynics. Guaranteed to please both player and audience!

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.

  • January 09, 2008 I play it differently

    I love the "music minus one violin" series, but this one I was disappointed with. The C.D. is very slow, and is played in strict time. I guess thats o.k. if you listen to it and learn it that way... but I play it quite differently.
