Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750): Violin Concerto in A Minor First Movement: Allegro Moderato Bach was a German composer

and a violinist of the Baroque Period. His music is unique in its combination of polyphonic texture and rich harmony. Several melodic lines of equal importance often occur at once and so many things might go on at the same time that the music will convey an awesome complexity and elaboration. He composed this piece of work in 1748 and it was first published in 1874. The solo instrument is the violin, accompanied by the orchestra. It is a spontaneous, infectious first movement that hurls inevitably forward. The motifs of the theme of the Allegro moderato appear in changing combinations and are separated and intensified throughout the movement. The syncopation figuration with the demi semi quavers is the smallest pulse in this movement. It appears in sequence twice in this movement to give out a sparkling effect.

Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809): Violin Concerto No. 4 in G Major Haydn was an Austrian composer, one of the most prolific and prominent composers of the classical period. He is often called the "Father of the Symphony" and "Father of the String Quartet" because of his important contributions to these forms. He was also instrumental in the development of the piano trio and in the evolution of sonata form. Composed by Haydn in 1769, the concerto begins with a flowing theme that pours out of a sharp opening cord. The theme itself is selfcourteously grand and courtly. There are many different characters for example, the triplet figuration that is occasionally interrupted by the legato phrase and the leaping of notes which gives out a lively feeling. The soloist leads the way through what seems like a recapitulation, but turns out to be an extension of the development. The soloist then completes with a cadenza and the piano accompaniment carries on with a brief recapitulation.

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827): Romance for Violin and Orchestra No.2 in F Major Beethoven was a German composer and a pianist. His compositional career is divided into three periods: early (up to 1802), middle (1803-1814), and late (1815-1827). He was also a pivotal figure in the transition from the 18th century musical classicism to 19th century romanticism, and his influence on subsequent generations of composers was profound. This piece was written in 1798, four years before the first romance and was published in 1805, two years later than the first. The rondo section features an antecedent-consequent theme performed by the soloist. Then, while the lyrical character of the theme is maintained, there is an adding of large, dramatic leaps followed by descending scales and arpeggios which after a glimpse of F minor, precedes a return to the rondo with a lighter accompaniment. The piece ends with a gentle ascending scaling passage that resolves to the F Major.
