    Default violin concerto masterworks - which of these do you know?

    As a longtime researcher on 20th century music with concertante violin, I created a list of recommendations of little to unknown compositions which should receive wider attention. Beside that I also added several favourites of mine which I think are better known and don't deserve special promotion. But I am not sure about that, so which of the following works do you (i.e. did you ever hear in a performance on CD, youtube, concert, whatever..)

    Dutilleux is the main one I know here. I vaguely know Hartmann and very vaguely know Khachaturian.

    Dutilleux and Khachaturian for me. I like them both (about the only work I like from Aram).

    I have heard the Blacher and Harris concerti, and I have no idea when or why.

    Do I get double credit if I've heard both the Khachaturian Violin Concerto and the Khachaturian Flute Concerto, given that they are basically the same work?

    You might find that a Lucky Violin Concerto could come in handy.

    The poll is online for just 2 hours or so, so there is an interest, but yes, I think I misjudged the popularity of many of these concerti. But that was my reason to start this poll.

    I know the Aram Khachaturian Violin concerto and I suspect it will the best known one statistically out of the list above.

    Interesting list. I have to check some of these out.

    Khachaturian, Harris, Hartmann, and probably Akses for me (I'm nearly certain I've at least heard some of the Akses Violin Concerto on a random Turkish music marathon day that I had, although I don't remember it that well).

    The Khachaturian is great, of course, and there's a reason it seems to be the most popular on this list. The Harris concerto is quite enjoyable, I'd definitely recommend it. The Hartmann concerto is pretty good as well.

    Just the Hartmann for me. I don't know any of the works in your previous poll.

    If I've heard any of these, I've forgotten them, so it's safe to say I don't know them. The only post-baroque violin concertos I know well are Beethoven, Schoenberg and Barber I think. Maybe Sibelius and Ades.

    [edit: -- and Berg]
