Tales Top Four Violin Concertos

As I have stated before on my classical music posts, my favorite form of music in the classical music repertoire is the concerto.  And since my favorite two instruments are the piano and clarinet I really put at the top of my favorite concertos Mozart's clarinet concerto and the numerous piano concertos from Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, etc.

But I also love the great concertos featuring the violin and orchestra. While there are many great violin concertos I have tried to narrow them down to my top four.  These top four I have picked also just happen to be four of my favorite composers [with a couple notable ones that are not in there, Mozart and Bach].  My top four violin concertos are from Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky and Brahms.  The order, I will list below from #4 to #1.
Brahms, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky
Please turn up the volume, play in full screen and enjoy the Tales list of his top four violin concertos.
