February 4, 2013 at 3:57 PMHow to make a classical cd that will sell well, although you are not the best violinist in the world?? : Record Rieding op. 21,25,34,36, Küchler op15, Járdányi for violin + orchestra on cd because IT HAS NEVER BEEN RECORDED on cd.
Itzhak Perlmann has recorded Rieding op.35, Seitz op.13 and Accolay1 for violin + orchestra on cd, and several Polish pianists and violinists have recorded some violin concertos for children and adult beginners (see below). But Küchler op.15, Rieding op.21,25,34,36, Járdányi concertino HAVE NEVER BEEN RECORDED on cd for violin + orchestra, although these pieces are high of my best, best-seen videos (see below) on my Youtubechannel, in my top-10 list of the last 4 ½ years that Violin concerto Youtube channel 'HenriVieuxtemps' has existed, and of my last year (because some violin concertos are not so long on my channel and are therefore not seen so often) .
You should expect that often-played iron repertoire pieces like Bruch1, Mendelssohn, Tsajikovsky, Brahms and Beethoven would be high in the top-10, because they are also on Violin concerto Youtubechannel 'HenriVieuxtemps', next to many unknown, obscure (and sometimes 2th rank) violin concertos.
So you can see that in the CD market, there is a big eagerness to buy these pupil-violin concertos on 1 or 2 cd’s of an average professional soloist (because the difficulty level of these concerto’s is not high) + professional orchestra of about 13 string-players (3 1th violinists, 3 2nd violinists, 3 viola’s, 3 cello’s, 1 double bass).
Every child who begins with violin lessons or every adult beginner you can give such a cd on his/her birthday as present, and than they have a good reference how to play those pieces from their violin lessons. Küchler op.15 with orchestra + Járdányi with orchestra you van find on YouTube: Küchler
So a new challenge for professional violinists is not to record the Bruch1/Mendelssohn-cd, Beethoven + 2 Romances-cd, Tsajikovsky +Lieu Cher-cd, Brahms-cd , because we have enough of these of big names from the past and this time, but instead to record these sort of “childish” violin concertos . The 4th and 5th violin concertos of Paganini are also in my Top-10 lists. They are never played in concert halls (only the 1st and 2nd sometimes) and seldom recorded (like Arthur Grumiaux who recorded the 4th and Accardo who recorded the 1-6). So that is another hole in the market. But perhaps the reason these Paganini Concertos are recorded so seldom is that it is too difficult -- and Rieding is recorded so seldom, because it is too easy.
OK, the 2 Bach violin concerto’s are recently quite popular and in the Top 10. But how many professional violinists will read my arguments on Violinist.com and will change their market strategy, and how much influence I will have (in the conservative violinist world)? I think there is a bigger chance of a new Bruch1/Händelssohn-cd than a Rieding op. 21,25,34,35,36, Küchler op. 15, Jardanyi-cd or a Paganini 4,5-cd.
