Yeah, this one movement has got to be one of the most amazing things ever written by anyone for any combination of musical instruments. I'm so glad that the violin is my instrument, so that I've had the chance to play through this.

I seem to recall Brahms did a piano arrangement of this too.

Nice! I've played through a transcription for guitar, but I'm sure it hardly compares to the original.

Yeah, Brahms supposedly arranged it for Schumann as a get well present when she injured her right hand. Paul Wittgenstein recorded it around his 70th birthday--youtube's no help on that one.
