- "Vieuxtemps played on the violin for over 15 years, and in his letter of 1878 he refers to it as his old friend and inseparable companion of 20 years. He also mentions that it helped him to compose his D minor concerto (no.4, op.31), which was published around 1850, so we can assume that he acquired the violin in the late 1840s. It is highly likely therefore that he would have given the premiere of his 4th and 5th concertos, which date from c.1850 and 1861 respectively, on this violin. In the letter he describes how the violin ‘performed’ his 4th concerto ‘avec un éclat et une puissance remarquable.’ "
