As many know, Shostakovich wrote two violin concertos. But his work list suggests two separate versions of the First, the Op. 77 and the Op. 99.

The Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor, Opus 77, was originally written by Dmitri Shostakovich in 1947–48. He was still working on the piece at the time of the Zhdanov decree, and in the period following the composer's denunciation the work could not be performed. The undoubted inspiration for the music was the legendary violin playing of Shostakovich’s great friend and contemporary, David Oistrakh. After the piece was completed, Oistrakh and the composer played it through privately on violin and piano, and Oistrakh even recorded a home-made tape of it.
