Mozart: Violin concertos Nos. 3-5




After Mozart’s youth symphonies, the Freiburger Barockorchester returns to the composer with a “portrait of the artist as a young man”: concertante music this time, with the last three violin concertos, composed when he was twenty years old. Melodically inventive, structurally rich, and showing complexity in the dialogue between the soloist and the orchestra, these works represent important milestones, not only in Mozart’s output, but also in the concerto genre in general. Often recorded, these concertos are presented here in a new version: in accordance with practices of the time, Kristian Bezuidenhout improvises a pianoforte part, while conducting the orchestra, over which the violin of Gottfried von der Goltz, an artist at the height of his powers, soars with great finesse. A totally new and exciting approach to these works!
