The Violin Concerto No. 2 in C major, Op. 58, by Camille Saint-Saëns, was the composer's first violin concerto, written in 1858, although it was published in 1879 and so is numbered second. It was premiered in 1880 with Pierre Marsick as soloist. The work is in three movements:

  1. Allegro moderato e maestoso - a tempo più allegro
  2. Andante espressivo
  3. Allegro scherzando quasi allegretto
