Brahms great concerto

Continuing a Brahms weekend with one of the four great violin concertos. In no specific order I believe the four great violin concertos are the Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn and Beethoven.
There are many other violin concertos by great composers but these are by far and away at the top of the class. Please, if any of these concertos are played at your local symphony, go to witness greatness.  What wonderful music.
Brahms second slow, romantic movement of his violin concerto is one of the most beautiful movements in any genre  of classical music.

Brahms Violin Concerto in D major, movement 2, Adagio
