    Eduard Hanslick, a much feared critic in his time, was not very complimentary following its première: the violin was no longer being played but rather _pulled about, torn asunder, beaten black and blue_. Yet he was not able to stop the triumphal march of Tchaikovsky's only violin concerto. Its incredible technical demands have meant that it is a true test of virtuosity. Its effectivenessis, however, mainly due to its great expressiveness – are there any violinists who do not love the lyrical melancholic _Canzonetta_? – and due to its Slavic temperament.

    Includes both marked and unmarked violin parts. Orchestral material is available from Breitkopf & Härtel.
