ON THIS DAY | Brahms Violin Concerto Premiered in 1879

The first performance was given by Hungarian virtuoso Joseph Joachim, with the composer conducting

Brahms Violin Concerto in D Major Op.77 premiered on this day in 1879.

Legend has it that Henryk Wieniawski deemed the concerto "unplayable,"and that Pablo de Sarasate refused to play it, as he felt it was indignant to "stand on the rostrum, violin in hand and listen to the oboe playing the only tune in the Adagio."
