Symphonic Concerto in E Flat
MOZART'S father had a great opinion of his son's capacity as a violinist, and urged him to practise.
To please his father, Mozart worked away at the fiddle, and a number of Concertos came as an outcome of his interest in the instrument.
This Symphonic Concerto has fuller, more significant orchestral passages than those often found in Concertos of the time, and the solo parts are not so independent and outstanding. The work is scored for solo Violin and Viola (the latter written in a key a semitone lower than the other parts, the player being instructed to tune his instrument a semitone higher), with accompaniment of Strings in six parts (two Viola parts), Oboes and Horns.
There are: a long and fully developed First
Movement, quick but dignified; a slow Movement of grave charm, with the solo instruments calling to each other 'gracefully, and a dapper Finale, sweeping along at full speed.
WHEN Mozart was twenty-six, he was a frequent visitor at the house of a wealthy and hospitable merchant of Salzburg-one Haffner. He wrote this Symphony for the marriage of one of Haffner's daughters, and so it gets its name.
The Haffner has the usual four Movements.
The FIRST MOVEMENT is a very spirited piece, with a bold, uncompromising air.
In complete contrast with this is the gentle
SECOND MOVEMENT. Now all is dainty grace and charm.
The THIRD MOVEMENT is a Minuet and Trio.
Finally there is a speedy, light-footed FINALE.
