FELIX MENDELSSOHN Violin Concerto, Op. 64 String Octet, Op. Liza Ferschtman violin Het Gelders Orkest Kees Bakels conductor. Mendelssohn's violin concerto with Liza Ferschtman is clear and fresh, breathes romantic melancholy, but above all spoils the joy of life and seems to dive through the orchestra especially in the Andante. A never superficial, sound-technically successful recording of this often-played concerto. Liza Ferschtman's Mendelssohn convinces with musical spontaneity and fresh harmony.

A violin concerto is a concerto for solo violin (occasionally, two or more violins) and instrumental ensemble, customarily orchestra. Such works have been written since the Baroque period, when the solo concerto form was first developed, up through the present day. Many major composers have contributed to the violin concerto repertoire, with the best known works including those by Bach, Bartók, Beethoven, Brahms, Bruch, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Paganini, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Sibelius, Tchaikovsky, and Vivaldi.
Felix Mendelssohn wrote his Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64, for his friend Ferdinand David, a renowned violinist. It took Mendelssohn a number of years to compose, and he completed the violin concerto in 1844. It was first performed in 1845 by the Gewandhaus Orchestra with David as the soloist (David was the regular concertmaster of this group). The violin concerto was received with great acclaim at its first performance, and has since become one of the most popular violin concertos in violin literature. This piece has a typical concerto form of three movements: fast-slow-fast.
