I uploaded 2 numbers from the Album Cosmic Messenger of jazz(rock) (electric) violinist
JEAN-LUC PONTY . This album I got when I was 15. Last year I got his autograph. It is a bit more rocky than my classical uploads.

I had plans to rip a cd of Vilmos Szabadi with his 2 violinconcerto's of Ernst von Dohnanyi. But I found this YouTube-video of the soloist by himself:
Here fragments of the four movements of the Dohnányi Violin Concerto No.1, Op. 27 in D minor (written in 1914-1915):
And here of his 2th violinconcerto Op.43 in C minor (written in 1949-1950) WITHOUT 1TH AND 2TH VIOLINISTS in the orchestra:
OK we all know Symphony Espagnole op.21 of Eduard Lalo (and his celloconcerto), but he wrote 3 other good pieces for violin and orchestra: Lalo (violin)Concerto Russe op.29, Norwegian Fantasy + violinconcerto Opus20.
Personally I think Concerto Russe is even better than Symphony Espagnole. De Sarasate wrote (Jopseph Gold had that letter) that he liked violinconcerto opus 20 of Eduourd Lalo more than his violinconcerto opus 21 Symphony Espagnole.
Just like with the 6 Paganini-concerto's I made 2 video's of Lalo with the best fragments. Sometimes lyrical and sentimental romantic, than strongly orchestrated bursting-out with forto passion. Judge it and compare it with Symphony Espagnole opus 21 (easier to find on YouTube, because it is more wel known):
Lalo (violin)Concert Russe op.29
Lalo Norwegian Fantasy + violinconcerto Opus20
We live in a soundbite-time, because everybody had a busy life. Soloists never listen to rare non-commerciaal violinconcerto's. Youtube is a medium to get people in contact with rarities. But also Youtube is part of that sound-bites era, because you only got 10 minutes. The fact is that there are a lot of recordings of the 1th violinconcerto on Youtube and perhaps Paganini 2th violinconcerto Campanella is also a little bit well known.
To help you to get to learn more of Paganini violinconcerto's I made 2 video's of his violinconcerto's. Every violinconcerto has 3 movements, so 3 violinconcerto's makes 9 minutes if I let you hear the first minute of every movement, just like when you want to buy a cd with amazon.com
Do you really think the first 2 violinconcerto's are much better than his last 4? Personally I like the slow part of the 4th very much and also the 2th movement of his 5th vc.
Paganini violinconcerto 1, 2, 3
Paganini violinconcerto 4,5,6
I think this is perhaps the best slow part of a violinconcerto ever written.
Also the 3th movement of the 1th symphony of Alexander Borodin ios a good piece:
