Violin composers

From Violinwiki
Jump to: navigation, search

At the very beginnings of music there was no violin, just choral tradition. For the period before the invention of violin, a selection of composers is listed. For the period after the invention of the violin (approximately 1530, the Baroque period), only the composers that composed an extant piece for violin or an extant piece containing a violin part are listed. The composers that did not compose a piece for violin are not usually listed unless a transcription of their piece for the violin was published.
