Violin Concerto in D major Op.35
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
The sixth of Tchaikovsky's 12 entries in the Ultimate Hall of Fame. This peaked at number 58 in 1999.
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.
