Max Bruch: Violin Concerto In G Minor Op.26

Books | Violin, Piano Accompaniment

Catalogue No: HN708
Composer: Max Bruch
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

It made its creator world-famous and added a towering masterpiece to the standard repertoire: Max Bruch’s First Violin Concerto In G Minor. Now it’s appearing at last in an urtext edition from Henle. Bruch himself was not always overjoyed at his work’s popularity: "I can’t listen to this concerto anymore," he once complained to his publisher Simrock, "do you suppose I’ve only written one concerto?" By now the Bruch Concerto has found a permanent place in the world’s concert halls. Henle’s edition provides not only a razor-sharp urtext for the solo part, but a preface that alone is worth the price of the volume: who could have guessed that the concerto went through a convoluted genesis with multi-layered revisions, and that some of the changes go back to the famous violinist Joseph Joachim?

          This is probably the best edition of the Bruch Violin Concerto violin solo and piano reduction you can buy. It has not one, but two editions of the violin part. One is completely blank, so you can add your own editorials. The other contains all of Josef Joachim's bowings and fingerings. And if you do not know who he is, you should go back to the drawing board. As always, the presentation and layout of the Henle Urtext edition is faultless. I would recommend this to any advanced player who is learning their first 19th Century concerto - it sounds harder to play than it really is. The Mendelssohn sounds easy, but is far from it, so do not be deceived.
