|Cadenzas to Ludwig van Beethoven's Concerto for Violin and Orchestra op. 61
# Indispensible for all violinists studying this masterpiece
# First publication of a cadenza by Wieniawski
# With notes on performance practice
Beethoven himself left no cadenzas for his Violin Concerto.
This edition is unique in drawing together for the ﬁ rst time a
selection of cadenzas to one of the most famous works in
the history of music, written by composers and violinists over
150 years. This publication contains not only the well-known
cadenzas by Leopold Auer and Joseph Joachim, but also several
which are seldom performed, such as those by Ferdinand David
(the ﬁ rst surviving cadenza to op. 61), Louis Spohr, EugŤne
Ysaˇe, Camille Saint-SaŽns, Henri Vieuxtemps, Jakob Dont and,
for the ﬁ rst time, one by Henryk Wieniawski.
Commentaries (German/English) on the composers and on
performance practice are included.
The edition complements the new piano reduction BA 9019a
and will be invaluable for all violinists studying Beethovenís
