Gyorgy Pauk gives a master class on Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 35.
Tchaikovsky wrote his brilliant Violin Concerto in D major in 1878 for the virtuoso violinist Leopold Auer. Unfortunately, both Auer and the violinist who followed him, Yosif Kotek, dubbed the work "impossible to play". It was finally premiered in Vienna on December 4, 1881 by Adolf Brodsky, but this violinist too met with difficulties and mixed reviews. Even so, the work's popularity grew steadily, eventually finding its own beloved place the violin repertoire. It is nonetheless considered one of the most technically difficult works for violin.
