In 1838 Felix Mendelssohn wrote to the violin virtuoso Ferdinand David informing him that he was working on a violin concerto “… the opening theme, one in E minor runs through my head and it gives me no peace”; the concerto in the state described by Mendelssohn to David was never published in a performing edition – it was only rediscovered in 1988.

One would think that such an important work would be adequately represented in modern editions true to the sources. Alas not even the score used today represents the orchestral parts Mendelssohn saw to print in 1845, but one heavily edited in the 1860s by Julius Rietz for the Mendelssohn Complete Edition.
