Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult. Frederick Grinke (violin)
Violin Concerto in A (K.219) Mozart
Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5, in A (K.219), is the fifth of six concertos written by him during 1775 and 1776. He was about twenty at the time of the first, and since he was then practising the violin hard-he was actually quite an accomplished player-it is presumed that he composed them as much for his own use as for use by others. This concerto is scored for small orchestra, two oboes, two horns, and strings, and the solo part is written with superb understanding of the genius of the instrument.
