Brahms hesitated for a long time over writing a solo concerto for an instrument whose technique he was not very familiar with. Therefore in 1877/78 his Concerto for violin and orchestra op. 77 came into being in close collaboration with his friend Joseph Joachim, who also contributed a cadenza for it. The work was quickly received with enthusiasm by Brahms's contemporaries, and today is still considered a central piece in the repertoire, so an Urtext edition in a convenient small format is useful for study purposes. It is based on the musical text of the New Brahms Complete Edition, and likewise contains the cadenza by Joachim in two different variants, first in the original form, and second, in a very interesting, condensed variant that Brahms made later with the violinist Marie Soldat.
