Info: Ludwig van Beethoven composed his Violin Concerto in D major, op. 61, in 1806. Its first performance by Franz Clement was unsuccessful and for a few decades the work languished in obscurity, until it was revived in 1844 by then violinist Joseph Joachim, aged 12, with the London Philharmonic Society orchestra conducted by Felix Mendelssohn. Since then, it has become one of the best-known violin concertos, considered by Joachim himself to be the "greatest" German violin concerto. This piece is the first movement and has a duration of about 20 minutes.

The artist: One of the greatest and most radical composers of all time. A tormented genius, who went deaf in later life and never heard his final works. His nine symphones are probably his greatest achievement, each one an unrivalved masterpiece, but he also wrote 5 piano concertos, piano sonatas, string quartets and one opera, Fidelio.
