Beethoven's Violin Concerto is arguably the most important violin concerto for the vast majority of violinists. I think that is due to the purity of this work. It is free of all virtuosity and, strictly speaking, free of all anger. There are a few bars in the first movement that sound as if Beethoven would succumb to his frustration and worry at his fate, but they last only a very short time and always dissolve shortly afterwards. Without doubt, this violin concerto is one of his most contented works.
