Violin Concerto No. 1 (Goldmark)

The Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor, Op.28 by Karl Goldmark was composed in 1877 and premiered in Bremen the same year. It consists of three movements:

  1. Allegro moderato
  2. Andante
  3. Moderato - Allegretto

A standard performance lasts approximately 32 minutes.

A very romantic work, it has a Magyar march in the first movement and passages reminiscent of Dvořák and Mendelssohn in the second and third movements. It has started to re-enter the repertoire, through recordings by such prominent violin soloists as Itzhak Perlman and Joshua Bell. Nathan Milstein also championed the work and Milstein's recording of the Concerto (1957) is widely considered the definitive one.

Goldmark wrote a second violin concerto, but it was never published.
