On July 30, 1838 the composer announced to his friend, the violinist Ferdinand David, that he would "probably also like to turn out a violin concerto for you to play next winter; I've got one in e minor stuck in my brain, and the opening won't leave me any peace." Yet although the initial sketches date from 1841 at the latest, it was not until the summer of 1844 that Mendelssohn actually carried out his plan.
