The Violin Concerti and the Sinfonia Concertante, K.364, in Full Score (Dover Music Scores) (Paperback)
Written in the year 1775, Mozart's lively violin concerti manifest the young composer's astonishing maturity and command of his craft. An "incredible fluency of musical speech ... richness of texture and sheer beauty of melodic line pervade this music" (Veims, The Concertos). Indeed, the concerti are the composer's earliest compositions that have maintained a secure position in the world's repertoire.
Also a staple of the concert hall is the Sinfonia Concertante, K.364, composed in 1779, and scored for violin, viola, and orchestra. Undoubtedly the most significant work Mozart composed that year, the piece is distinguished by its symphonic sweep, advanced harmonies, and the beautiful slow movement, among Mozart's most moving creations.
