Concerto in E minor, Op.64 for violin and piano (1st edition, 1844) (urtext) by Felix Mendelssohn

First edition, 1844. Urtext edition by R. Larry Todd. Published by Barenreiter

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847) is one of the most important German composers of the Romantic era. He was most comfortable composing in a charming, relatively conservative style influenced by the Classical period and free from many of the developing trends of the Romantic Era, while incorporating important innovations in many works. He also held a singular position in German musical life as the founder of the Leipzig Conservatory, a prominent conductor of the renowned Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, and a seminal figure in the revival of the music and legacy of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor, Op.64 is one of his most celebrated and important works. It was groundbreaking in its time for its written out cadenza, prominent solo line, and considerable technical demands. Its charm, lyricism, and and strong personality led Joseph Joachim to declare it ''the heart's jewel'' of violin concertos. Today, it remains one of the most central and popular concertos in the repertory. This special Barenreiter urtext edition of an early version of the concerto reflects discoveries of 1844 proofs with notable differences from the standard 1845 version in articulation and solo passage work. Contains marked and unmarked solo parts, as well as critical and historical commentary. Master level, Grade 6.
