(Violin) and Orchestra Violin Concerto in D, Op. 77
ONE of Brahms' most intimate friends was the great violinist, Joachim...
This Violin Concerto, the only one Brahms ever wrote, was dedicated to him, and Joachim, besides taking a great interest in its composition, and advising about some points of fiddle writing, himself wrote the cadenzas for it.
Early Violin Concertos were not much more than means of display for the soloist. In this of Brahms the violinist is a partner with the Orchestra, bound up in the bundle of its life ; there is a perfect balance between the works of the two, and each contributes equally to the building up of the work.
There are three Movements ; a fully-developed quick one, a serene Slow one, and an energetic
Finale, in which we find some gay Hungarian colour.
