Jean Sibelius Violin Concerto in D Minor Premiere

Jean Sibelius’ Violin Concerto in D Minor Op. 47 premiered on this day in 1905.

The first performance was given by Czech violinist Karel Halíř – with Richard Strauss conducting the Berlin Court Orchestra.

The work’s initial version was premiered one year earlier to disastrous reviews – before Sibelius made substantial cuts and revisions.
