Performed by Geoffrey Applegate, violin Accompaniment: Stuttgart Symphony Orchestra Conductor: Emil Kahn 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 score and access to audio tracks of demonstration and backing tracks. The audio is accessed online using the unique code inside each book and can be streamed or downloaded. The audio files include PLAYBACK+, a multi-functional audio player that allows you to slow down audio without changing pitch, set loop points, change keys, and pan left or right.

  • September 28, 2008 Great study-buddy!

    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!

  • April 24, 2008 Beware!

    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.
