Amid the abundance of virtuoso literature for thisinstrument, Dvorak's Violin Concerto inA minor is one of the lyrical gems which betray the composer's Czechinspiration. He wasencouraged to write it by the fine German violinist Joseph Joachim, upon whoseinstigationDvorak re-worked the entire concerto and dedicated it to his friend. This worldfamousconcerto may be studied in more detail with the aid of Karel Solc's pianoreduction, whichis part of the first Complete Critical Edition of Works by Antonin Dvorak. Theviolin part wasrevised by the artist who first performed the work, Frantisek Ondricek, and itwas newlyrevised by prof. Jindrich Feld.
