Alexander Glazunov Violin Concerto in A Minor Op. 82 premiered on this day in 1905 – 112 years ago.
The first performance was given by Hungarian virtuoso, Leopold Auer – with the Russian Musical Society Orchestra.
The 20 minute, continuous work is a much loved standard in today’s violin competition and concert repertoire.
