Ludwig van Beethoven: Violin Concerto Op. 61
A Discography of CDs, Records and DVDs

Prepared by Uwe Sauerteig

This discography focuses on media being available in a physical format that can be (or could have been) purchased or obtained from either a commercial or non-commercial source. Tape recordings and music available exclusively as downloads from the internet are not included. Each listing of a recording consists of the following components:
(1) violinist, orchestra, conductor (while a * marks a pseudonym)
(2) composer of the recorded cadenza in the 1st movement
(3) label, catalogue number, year of issue and EAN code of the media used for review, if an EAN code was not available, other works on the media or the title of a collection were added.

Please note that the performers listed are for the Beethoven violin concerto and not necessarily for the work or works that complete the media.

In our digital world recording titles and artist names are often incomplete or incorrect, but the EAN code is used on nearly all digital platforms. Even if it is not visible on a platform, it can be used to search for media.

Information about Beethoven violin concerto cadenzas can be found at Martin Wulfhorst’s website. Cadenzas in the public domain can be downloaded from the IMSLP. The pseudonyms and cadenzas were identified by reviewing nearly all recordings except a few marked as unavailable for review.
