Dvořák Violin Concerto Premiere

Antonín Dvořák’s Violin Concerto in A Minor was premiered on this day in 1883.

The concerto was inspired and dedicated to Hungarian virtuoso Joseph Joachim – however it’s believed the end result fell short of his expectation and he never performed the work.

The first performance was given by František Ondříček in Prague.
