  • July 22, 2011 Mendelssohn VIolin Concerto

    I love this piece, but the middle of the first movement is sooo hard. It's one of those pieces where you love it, but it's a lot of work.

  • January 01, 2011 Some things didn't really work for me.

    I tried this edition of Mendelssohn as my first edition. This was not the best choice. The main thing very strange in this edition are the bowings. Some of them, such as when the soloist alternates the main theme with a different chord with the orchestra playing a trill, just...

    didn't really work for me. I didn't find it accommodating to have to take a huge bow retake twice in the middle of that fortissimo section. I do not recommend this edition to somebody learning Mendelssohn for the first time, but for those who have already figured out their bowings/fingerings, go right ahead.

  • March 22, 2008 Wonderful concerto!

    This is on the top of my list, in terms of violin concertos. I am 15 and have just started playing this violin concerto, after hearing a 13 year old play it with a youth orchestra. The piece is rather demanding, but not as technically difficult as other violin concertos...

    such as the Tchaikovsky, Sibelius, or even Bruch. I fell in love with this concerto when I heard the first few seconds of the first movement. If you play this piece both musically and technically, you can blow anyone away (especially with the octaves in the first movement!). This, like most people have said, is a must for any violinist's repertoire!

  • March 14, 2007 This concerto is AMAZING!!

    I'm 15 and have just got this concerto from my private teacher and am learning it very fast. This is an amazing concerto and requires hard work and a lot of time put into it. But if you learn how to play it, you will blow anyone away. I...

    would only recommend this song to people who are really good or have been playing a looong time. Enjoy!!

  • February 12, 2007 OMG!! what a bast!

    This song is, like, cool. I first got into it a couple years ago when I heard Nicola Benedetti perform it at the Center for the Arts. I only learned the first movement because it is definetly my favorite.There is a lot of shifing, going all the way up...

    to a really high E, and lots of arpeggios and cords. I'd only suggest learning to play this if you take private lessons or have been playing a long while. Those of you who do buy this, (like I did), you will be real happy! Three words! Oh...My...God:) Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!
