21. Brahms: Violin Concerto


[…] the wine and Brahms mix well
as you watch the lights move across the ceiling,
courtesy of passing automobiles.
soon you’ll sleep
and tomorrow there certainly
will be more masterpieces.

Excerpt from  A Place In Philly by Charles Bukowski 


Brahms’ Violin Concerto is considered one of the four great German violin concerti, along with Beethoven’s, Bruch’s and Mendelssohn’s. Brahms dedicated his version to his friend, the 19th century violin virtuoso Joseph Joachim.

Brahms and Joachim were close friends with Robert Schumann‘s wife Clara. While Robert was wrestling with the devil, the two often visited Clara with their pants on their ankles to check if she needed anything. Some gang.

Recommended recording:
David Oistrakh, Otto Klemperer & Orchestra National de la Radiodiffusion Francaise

Oistrakh’s recording is considered one of the four great recordings, along with Heifetz and the Chicago SO, Szeryng and the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra and — more recently — Isabelle Faust and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra.
