Joachim Concerto, op. 11


Recommended Posts

I have been listening to this work at least once a week for the past six months, and it just keeps growing on me. (I have the Oliveira/London Phiharmonic CD, 1991). I simply cannot understand why it isn't more highly praised. It is ravishing. Perhaps it just takes a violinist to appreciate its depth and artistry. Did past greats record this? Any favorites through the years??

Both Aaron Rosand and Rachel Barton have recordings of the Joachim concerto; they're both excellent. Barton's is paired with the Brahms concerto; while Rosand's has a number of other Romantic violin works that are not heard enough, either.

This concerto is one of my favorites; for me, it has the feel of some of the best concertos. Pity it's not better known.

The sheet music for the concerto seems to be available, but pricey.
