Introduction

This page is all about Violin Concertos. A number of French School Concerti listed here (by Baillot, De Beriot, Dancla, Rode, Kreutzer, Viotti, Vieuxtemps etc.) are sometimes listed in the Student Concerto category. Also, Vivaldi Concerti (or even Bach) are also often placed in the student category, perhaps because they are relatively easy and short. Vivaldi Concerti (Grossi) are the prototypes of the Modern Concerto form, and are thus on a much smaller scale. They have alternating Tutti and Solo parts... perhaps 4 solo sections, as opposed to 2 or 3 longer solo sections commonly found in the Classical and Romantic eras. There are 2 types of Violin Concerti. 1) Those written by Violinists for Violinists and 2) Those written by the great Composers, (non-violinists) but probably in collaboration with contemporary Violinists who would give technical and practical advice on the playability of difficult passages. Please note that Sibelius, Bach and Elgar were all fair Violinists, but their Concertos have risen to the heights of the great 4 (Mendelssohn, Brahms, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky).
