Violin Concerto No. 1 (Bruch)
Max Bruch composed his Violin Concerto Number 1 in G minor, Opus 26, in 1866, when he was 28 years old. One of three violin concertos written by the composer, it is one of the most popular in the repertoire.
The first movement is a prelude, allegro moderato, and the second a very moving adagio. The finale, marked allegro energico, is the most difficult to play.
