Down 22. Lowest position since 2003. 6th of Tchaikovsky's 12 entries.

Along with the violin concertos of Bruch and Mendelssohn, this warhorse by Tchaikovsky is one of the most important works for the instrument in the history of Romantic music. It is also a piece that, like the 1812 Overture, is implicitly linked with Tchaikovsky's emotional turmoil and sham marriage.
