0. 1. By Coral Reef and Shady Palm. In the original (Orchestral) form of the music the opening Theme is given out over an insistent pizzicato (plucked) bass which plays an important part throughout the movement. This gradually works up to a climax, after which -the first theme is resumed, and a brief Coda, founded on earlier material, brings the movement to a close.
No. 2. Savaii Love Song. Over a soft, lilting accompaniment, in which, in the orchestral form of the music, the Ukulele is used (probably the first time in music of serious character), the main theme is given out. This is afterwards treated in imitative style, and ends mysteriously.
No. 3. Festal Dance. This movement is written throughout in the Dorian mode, and is founded upon one theme only. The whole finale is extremely rhythmic and barbaric in character ; a long and sustained working-up passage brings the work to an exhilarating conclusion.

A S a boy, Mozart was a wonderful pianist; as a youth, he was a capable violinist. Boy, youth and man he was, of course, a composer of boundless genius. The Concerto of which wo are to hear a portion was, with five others, written at a time, about the age of nineteen, when he was particularly interested in the Violin, which he had studied under his father, one of the greatest teachers of the day.
