1    Theme 1. This tune is quietly played by the oboes, clarinets and bassoons, then taken up later by the strings.

2    Theme 2, introduced by the woodwinds. This is the best-known tune from Beethoven's violin concerto.

3    Violin solo entrance. The soloist has a very long wait before playing this fairly dramatic opening theme.

4    The soloist plays this tune in a very high register. It is a variation on theme 1 introduced at the start by the orchestra.
