He made his composer famous, enriched by a grandiose work of violin repertoire, and, what is more, it is finally published by Henle: it is the first Concerto for violin in G minor of Max Bruch. Although Bruch himself did not always appreciate the great popularity enjoyed by his work - "I can not stand listening to this concerto - did I only write this single concerto?", He writes irritated to Simrock, his publisher - the fact remains that the work can no longer be banished from the concert halls. The Henle edition provides an exemplary text for the violin part. The preface too would be enough to justify the purchase: who knows indeed that the concerto of Bruch knew a genesis of the most complicated, marked of several stages of revision, and that some of the corrections made are due to the famous violinist Joseph Joachim?
