After hearing the Boston Symphony Orchestra perform Martinů's Symphony No. 1 in New York, Mischa Elman commissioned the composer to write a violin concerto for him. Martinů thereupon composed his Second Violin Concerto in 1943. That same year Elman played the solo part at the premiere, with Sergei Koussevitzky conducting the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
