    Default violin concerto masterworks - which of these do you know? - part 2

    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..)

    I know the Martinu, Sallinen, and Tuur fairly well. I may have listened once to the Respighi and Sessions concerti.

    The Martinu violin concerto, which I expect will be statistically the well known one out of the list above.

    Of the list, Ernest Moeran's Violin Concerto is my most go to piece. What a glorious work it is (spellbindingly nostalgic and songful in the finale).

    While I might have heard some of these, I don't know any of these well enough to vote. I think I've heard the Respighi, but I don't remember it very well. Will have to check some of these out sometime.

    I don´t get the appeal for concertos.

    I wouldn't expect it to change anyone's mind, but I thought I'd mention that I found Joseph Kerman's "Concerto Conversations" to be an entertaining read on the subject.

    Some music is more enjoyable to read about than listening to.
    Most of the time I listen to concertos I want to cut out the soloist.

    For those who didn't notice this second part of my poll, a little push up in the list.

    Though they are among my favorite composers, not even the Martinu or Moeran concertos are in my experience.
