Schönberg Violin Concerto Premiere

Arnold Schönberg Violin Concerto Op. 36 premiered on this day in 1940.

The first performance was given by Ukrainian-born American virtuoso Louis Krasner with The Philadelphia Orchestra – conducted by Leopold Stokowski.

Whilst the 3 movement concerto employs twelve-tone techniques, it contains noticeably stronger tonal melodic and thematic structure than many of Schoenberg’s earlier works.
