Non-Standard Violin Concertos

In addition to playing the staples of the violin repertoire, I particularly enjoy putting some spotlight on the lesser-known works for violin and orchestra. I find that there are quite a few fantastic pieces which deserve to be better known. In this page you will find concert videos of some of my favorite rare gems:


Ysaye - Chant d’hiver for violin and orchestra, op. 15

 

Rodrigo - Concierto de estio (“Summer Concerto”) for violin and orchestra (1943)

 

Szymanowski - Violin Concerto no. 2 (1933)
1st movement

 

Szymanowski - Violin Concerto no. 2 (1933)
2nd movement

 

Hartmann - Concerto Funebre for violin and string orchestra (1939/1959)

 

Ben-Haim - Three Songs without words for violin and orchestra (1951)

 

Mendelssohn - Concerto in D minor for violin and string orchestra
