Brahms wrote his Violin Concerto (1879) for the virtuoso Joseph Joachim, who relished its challenges. ‘One enjoys getting hot fingers playing it,’ he exclaimed, ‘because it’s worth it!’ Wagner’s most tender work had a more private beginning – it was composed in 1870 as a birthday gift for his wife Cosima. Strauss’s tone poem (1889) imagines an artist's death and the subsequent transformation of his spirit. Scenes from the artist’s life flash past, painted in Strauss’ brilliant orchestration.
