Violin
Composed by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893). Instrumental Solo Part and CD. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3102).

Item Number: MO.MMOCD3102
ISBN 1596151315.

Tchaikovsky's soaring, magnificent violin concerto is one of the summits of the literature and one which every aspiring virtuoso needs to learn. Highly recommended, it is truly inspiring music in the great Russian Romantic tradition.

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.

    The rating is NOT for the concerto itself, but for the usability of this music-minus-one. I have tried the first movement with the CD, and it is difficult to match the tempo. I listened to the orchestra with soloist track, and there are places where the playing is...

    slow, and then somehow it gets much faster, as if the soloist is trying to catch up with the orchestra. No wonder it was crazy when I tried to play along. This agrees with what another reviewer said.

    I resently saw this concerto performed by James Ehnes with the OSM and it was really good. People stood up to applaud after the first mvt because they liked it so much. If you have the time and talent to learn this it is an absolute must!!!

    I was looking forward to using this Tchaikovsky Concerto CD, but was disappointed to find the tempos so very slow. The recording of soloist with orchestra is undertempo, which would make it a valuable asset if one was just beginning to learn the notes, but for a violinist who knows...

    the concerto well,it was rather dull and boring. There are other concertos that would likely work well with the orchestra separately format for playing along, but the Tchaikovsky concerto has too many places that require rubato to make it practical. I found this slow version of the orchestra accompaniment frustrating and a hindrance to the musical nature of this piece.

  • April 22, 2006 "Unplayable?"

    When this piece was first played, a famous music critic tore this piece to shreads. Tchaikovsky took this to heart and will never forget this experiece. However, this is by far one of the top pieces on the violin repetoire (along with Brahms, Korngold, and others). Also, I think anyone...

    who would say such a terrible thing about this piece thinks music is supposed to only be beutiful, and never technical. This piece isn't unplayable, it just takes time to learn.

  • November 06, 2001 The best first movement of all

    'Tis my soul tune. I know ya'll be laughing at me, but I think from this piece I started to love Tchaikovksy. Even his piano concerto doesn't produce this much ferver and affection on me.
