dedicated to Joseph Joachim who performed the revised version in January 1868. One of the many factors that sets this concerto apart from typical romantic period concertos is that it does not have a cadenza in the same manner. Rather, there are sections at the beginning and at the end of the first movement in which the violin plays lyricals melodies unaccompanied. The style or form of this piece is called 'form nouvelle'.
