Concert-Studien für die Violine : eine Sammlung von Violin-Solo-Compositionen berühmter älterer Meister

These works are part of a collection containing work from multiple composers: View entire collection

The collection, which is here in three separately issued volumes, was published by Senff in 1856. It could also be purchased as individual concertos, or as a single volume with all twelve concertos. Originally issued as solo violin parts only, a separate piano accompaniment by Friedrich Hermann was later published, which was also available in the same formats as the solo parts.

As the title page indicates, these concertos by the three most influential violinists of the late 18th- and 19th-century Viotti or Paris School were still regarded as essential study material in later 19th-century music conservatories such as the Leipzig Conservatorium where David was principal violin teacher.

The collection comprises the following concertos:

Volume 1: Giovanni Battista Viotti Violin Concertos (numbers 22, 23, 28, 29)

Volume 2: Pierre Rode Violin Concertos (numbers 4, 6, 7, 8)

Volume 3: Rudolphe Kreutzer Violin Concertos (numbers 13, 14, 18, 19)

Die hohe Schule des Violinspiels

These works are part of a collection containing work from multiple composers: View entire collection

The Hohe Schule is a collection of twenty works for violin, as listed below. Each work is available individually under its composer. The entire work is available here in David's personal, extensively annotated copy (from the Uppingham Collection). Each item was published separately, and then as a single collection.

The Uppingham volume seem to have been compiled from individual copies of each piece (probably after the music came into the possession of Paul David), since there are a number of places where Ferdinand David's manuscript annotations in the margins have been cropped during binding. David evidently used these copies for his own performances. In No. 6, Leclair's Sonata in G major, for instance, David wrote 'Umwender' (page turner) on p. 6, at the beginning of the Largo, and also the date '29 Oct. 1870' when we know that he performed the Largo and Chaconne in a Gewandhaus chamber concert. The volume also contains a significant number of annotations by his son Paul, which are, for the most part, easily distinguishable from those of his father.

I have marked and commented on interesting aspects of David's annotations in the text using red boxes. These appear only in the versions presented below as individual items. A copy of the whole volume without the red boxes can be accessed here. To see the red commentary boxes click on the links below.
