Viotti: Piano Concerto in G minor (Transcription of Violin Concerto No.19)


Giovanni Battista Viotti (12 May 1755 -- 3 March 1824) was an Italian violinist whose virtuosity was famed and whose work as a composer featured a prominent violin and an appealing lyrical tunefulness. He was also a director of French and Italian opera companies in Paris and London.

Of the 29 violin concertos by Viotti, at least 13 were also published as pianos concertos during his lifetime. Here it is a piano version of Violin Concerto nº 19 in G minor
