PART 5 Why are these rare violinconcerto's never been played or seldom (and never) recorded?
Hello,
This week the Italian born composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco. Heifetz and Perlman have recorded his 2th violinconcerto opus 66 “The Prophets”. His rare violinconcerto is a favourite of Dutch violinists Carla Leurs and Tjeerd Top. The last one called it: “Quality in an unknown area.” They both like it to play with their professional orchestra or as soloist one day in their life, if that will ever happen.
I could not find soundfragments of it on www.jpc.de or www.amazon.com , but they have it on amazon.com without soundfragments:

The first violinconcerto of Castelnuovo-Tedesco is UNRECORDED, as far as I know. The sheetmusic of both violinconcerto’s I found in the Conservatory of The Hague, Den Haag, the Netherlands.

Broken bow fixed and Symphonic Dances Rachmaninov

February 23, 2006 04:36

My broken bow is fixed by the violinmaker with a piece of ebony attached with glue. With it I play (as second violinist, because we have a lot of bars rest) with the first violins this very beautiful solo from the Symphonic Dances of Rachmaninov from a copy.

PART 4 Why are these rare violinconcerto's never been played or seldom recorded?
Dear Mr. Gold and musicians,
I use my mailinglist (with 3 Polish violinconcerto’s this week, WIENIAWSKI 1, LIPINSKI 2, KARLOWICZ) to answer your letter in an unusual way to enlarge the change that I can play this rare "Allegro Dramatique" by Antonio Bazzini or Concerto Number 2 ( "On Indian Themes") by the American violinist-composer Cecil Burleigh with a Dutch amateurorchestra with you one day. Or perhaps a professional Dutch orchestra invites you to play these pieces (and record them?), so I can hear them in the concerthall? I have a cheap bow of 220 euro/170dollar and the violinmaker put for 50 euro a piece of ebony with glu in the top of my bow and I have a metal aing, but I bought some new strings so I will remove it soon for a metal wound synthetic Aing. The violinmaker killed a woodworm in my cheap 7/8-violon, who had eated as hungry animal a lot from the side of my violin, with resin.
Best regards Bram Heemskerk www.violinist.com/blog/jenohubay

Dear Mr. Heemskerk,
Your enthusiasm for non-standard repertoire is wonderful. As you know, there are a few violinists who explore this repertoire. Please remember that the modern violin technique uses synthetic strings ( not gut strings). The result is a very heavy, aggressive style of playing. The gut strings are more sensitive to sensitive nuance. Listen to the range of emotion and nuance in the sound of Jascha Heifetz. His sound is a kalaidescope of tonal color. The gut strings ( unwound gut) he used help express these colors! He used a pure gut "A" string, and a pure gut "D" string. I suggest that you try these strings on your violin. Milstein and Rosand used a pure gut "A" string. If you are interested, I can recommend some strings, and also the measurements of the strings.
My first violin teacher studied at the Berlin Hochschule when Joachim wasc the director. I think he heard Joachim perform the Hungarian Concerto. If it was not Joachim, then it was played by Halir. I do not remember exactly what my teacher said- it was a very long time ago. My teacher also heard Sarasate play in Berlin. He talked about Sarasate many times. I think he prefered the violin playing of Sarasate and not the German style.
Let me recommend a wonderful book about violin concerti. Try to buy this book- it lists more than 6,000 violin concerti."CONCERTOS FOR VIOLIN AND VIOLA" by Burnett R. Toskey.
There are other concereti that I have played. They are great works. One is Concerto Number 2 ( "On Indian Themes") by the American violinist-composer Cecil Burleigh. Leopold Auer said that the Bureigh concerto is the best concerto written by an American. I have played it in concert with piano, and also with orchestra. I recommend it highly.
Another concerto that is unknown is "Allegro Dramatique" by Antonio Bazzini. This piece is about 13 minutes in length. I played it with piano. I have the orchestra parts. Bazzini was the composition teacher of Puccini. Everyone knows his famous piece "La Ronde de Lutins". Bazzini was a fine composer. The Allegro Dramatique sounds like the music of Verdi circa Aida.
If you are interested, I will play one of these "special" violin concertos in Holland. Do you think any of your amateur orchestras are interested?
You can repair your broken bow. Is it an expensive bow?Keep in touch.
Sinceerely,Joseph Gold-

Gidon Kremer

February 20, 2006 04:43

This weekend I was at a concert of Gidon Kremer. Original programm and he gave 2 encores. One piece of I think Stephan Graphelli and the orchestra croones during the last note. Second encore was a virtuoso piece of I think Piazolla. Of course I didn't forget my standard ritual/crusade of promoting rarities by giving him some cd's and a Vieux Temps-beer and Bach-wine. Just like Joshua Bell he was interested in my rarity promoting efforts.

PART 3 Why are these rare violinconcerto's never been played or seldom recorded?
Hello 101 musicians,

This week the technical difficult 2th violinconcerto “in Hungarian style” opus 11 of Joseph Joachim and the 3th opus 99 of the Hungarian Jeno Hubay. Earlier I sent you this double cd of Aaron Rosand for the 1th Godard violinconcerto op.35 on disc 2 number 2.
Joachim violinconcerto no. 2 opus11 you can hear on disc 1 of Aaron Rosand numbers 1. I. Allegro Un Poco Maestoso, 2. II. Romanze: Andante, 3. III. Finale Alla Zingara: Allegro Con Spirito: on Windows media, while seeing the notes in pdf. Each part 1 minute.
This Joachim2 violinconcerto is also recorded by Rachel Barton and Elmar Oliveira.
Hubay violinconcerto no.3 opus 99 you can hear on disc 1 of Aaron Rosand numbers 4 I. Introduction Quasi Fantasia: Moderato, 5 II. Scherzo, 6 III. Adagio, 7 IV. Finale: Allegro Con Fuoco
Also Vilmos Szabadi has recorded the 3th Hubay and violinist Hagai Shaham.
It is my dream to play these pieces in an amateurochestra or to hear them once in a concerthall. But how far is this dream from reality?
Best regards Bram Heemskerk

February 16, 2006 15:28

Do you also want to join my mailing list? Here my second mail with Dohnanyi1, Lalo op.20, Vieuxtemps3 and links where you can hear soundfragments. I got a reaction from Joseph Gold. He has a soundsample on the openingpage of www.violinist.com:

Dear Mr. Heemskerk,
Thank you for your letter. There are many fine violin concertos that are never performed- and many bad concertos that everyone plays!
I performed the Goddard Concerto and violin sonata many years ago. They are very charming works.
I know that Sarasate preferred to perform Lalo's Concerto in F Major rather than the Symphony Espagnole ( I have an important letter written by Sarasate, and he explains his preference!)
The orchestration to one of Sarasate's Spanish dances was arranged by Lalo.
Perhaps you knew that Sarasate had one of the largest repertoires of any violinist. In fact, there are many compositions dedicated to him. He played most of them. He even performed Wieniawski's 2nd Concerto. I have the concert program which proves this.
I hope this information is interesting to you.
Sincerely,

Joseph Gold

soryy hurry, middaybreak ended


I tried to put an entry on my blog, but at 5.00 violinist-time and 13.00 hour Dutch time Fortiguard blocked one of my favorite websites, so I could not change a mistake in typing in a hurry in my foto-link.
The scan is from my tuesdayorchestra where I got 2 days ago our half-year booklet. On the front page there is the text: "Now, It is tuesday again."

Mailinglist for rare pdf-violinconcerto's. GODARD1, LALO op.29 CONCERTO RUSSE, VIEUXTEMPS7 + soundsamples

February 10, 2006 15:31

Now I am sending every week a mail with heavy attachments from around 1,5 Mbyte to a list of 100 recipients, amateursorchestra's, professional orchestra's and national and internatianl violinists, like Joshua Bell, Vadim Repin, Anne-Sophie Mutter. Because of the heavy attachments only 3 people wanted to be removed from the mailing list (one of them the friend of Janine Jansen Julian Rachlin, because he was touring and didn't have enough capacity for such hugh mails), but I also get enthousiastic reactions. The 2 or 3 violinconcerto's I have scanned on pdf and are of good printing quality. I also give a link of amazon.com and a foto of a cd, where you can hear soundfragments from Window media by clicking in the mail.
Do you also want to join my mailing list? Here my first mail With Godard1, Lalo op.29 Concerto Russe, Vieuxtemps7:

PART1 Why are these rare violinconcerto's never been played or seldom recorded?

Hello musicians,
You probably know the evergreenviolinconcerto’s of Bruch, Brahms, Beethoven, Mendelssohn,etc. But there is more and it is not always second rank, I think. Here you can have a look in the sheetmusic and there are also some rare recordings of them with soundsamples if you scroll down the link. So perhaps after this promotion action of me and perhaps your attention, they will become also populair again, like the (too) much played well known violinconcerto’s?

Janine pointing to something

February 10, 2006 14:57

I have a foto of Janine pointing to a present from her friend and a present from the mother of her friend and her Strad Barrere from 1727. But perhaps she is also pointing to the things below that? Bill is good in compositefoto's,as we know from the Sydney/Oprah-foto, so perhaps he change some things?

Amber violin brooch-foto 2 + sweet melody in Symfonic Dances Rachmaninov

February 5, 2006 14:28

Today I got a rehearsal day of an orchestra where we played Beethoven symfony 8, celloconcerto 1 of Vieuxtemps. In that orchestra was the woman with the amberbrooch. She had another foto of it and made it small enough enough in size for my blog. So here again a close-up of the amber brooch. After that rehearsal day I had another orchestra where we played Mozart and yesterday with a third orchestra this weekend we played Harmonium of Adams with a choir and Symphonic dances of Rachmaninov. In that last piece there is a beautiful melody in the first part, which is played by the first violinists. And the second violinists have 40 bars rest. That is not fair. So I made a copy of the first violin music and I play with them. The conductor didn't saw it, because I was sitting next to the first violinists.
But here again the brooch:
