This treatise offers a study of alternative repertoire to the canonized violin concertos of the intermediate and advanced level. The first chapter outlines the history of the violin concerto, from the early stages of the development of the genre through the nineteenth century. The stylistic and formal developments of each period are discussed, and an overview of violin concertos by representative composers is presented. Charts are provided to illustrate the emerging trends in each period of music history.
The chapters that follow the overview provide an in-depth exploration of repertoire selected for study. Chapter three examines three intermediate concertos given the American String Teacher Association rating of four. The concertos discussed include: Giuseppe Tartiniís Concerto in D Minor, as revised by Emilio Pente; Charles de Beriotís Violin Concerto No. 9, op. 104; and Giovanni Battista Viottiís Violin Concerto No. 22 in A Minor. Chapter four discusses three advanced violin concertos given the ASTA rating of five: (Jacques) Pierre (Joseph) Rodeís Violin Concerto No. 7, op. 9; Ludwig (Louis) Spohrís Violin Concerto No. 2, in D Minor; and Jules Conusís Violin Concerto in E Minor.
Historical information for each concerto and brief biographical information for each composer is provided. Through original research, a general summary of stylistic features and compositional techniques as pertains to performance is presented. More detailed analysis of the stylistic, harmonic, structural, and expressive elements is included towards gaining a deeper understanding of the music and preparing a thoughtful and stylistically accurate performance. An equally important part of the research includes analysis of technical issues. A discussion of the left-hand and right-hand technique needed for each piece and specific problems a student may encounter are included. Technical and compositional features are also outlined in a chart for each concerto.
