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.

A highly romantic concerto in the usual classical three movements, many famous violinists, from Jascha Heifetz to Sarah Chang, have recorded it.

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.
