As we get close to New Years 2022, you will see many countdowns of the 10 or 100 best songs of the year on FM radio; and on the TV networks you may get the 10 best or more news stories of the year. This Classical music blog will give out, in my humble opinion, the top pieces in four different classical music genres on the next four days-Thursday, Friday [New Year’s Eve], Saturday [New Years Day], and Sunday [Jan. 2, 2022]. Of course, they won’t be for this past year as these pieces were composed many years/decades/centuries ago by the masters of classical music.
Without further ado, on this New Years Eve day, please turn up the volume and enjoy my top four Violin Concertos.
4. Johannes Brahms, Violin Concerto in E-minor:
3. Felix Mendelssohn’s, Violin Concerto in E-minor:
2. L.V. Beethoven’s, Violin Concerto in D-Major:
and drum roll please, my number one …
#1. P.I. Tchaikovsky’s, Violin Concerto in D-Major:
I hope you enjoyed my top violin concertos even if I missed one of yours! Thanks for listening.
