MARGARET HUXLEY ) (violins) Borodin began the composition of Prince Igor in 1869 ; when he died eighteen years later his masterpiece was still unfinished. Several of the numbers were in a fragmentary state, and very little of the opera had been orchestrated ; the Overture had not even been put on paper, though the composer had frequently played it on the piano to his friends. The completion and orchestration of Prince Igor was undertaken by Rimsky-Korsakov and Glazunov jointly, and a legend has come into existence that Glazunov ' wrote out the Overture entirely from memory' of the composer's playing. This is not quite true. What Glazunov actually did was to reconstruct the Overture from the given themes ' nearly according to Borodin's plan '. Mozart's Concerto (or, rather, Concertore) for two violins was written at Salzburg in 1773. Leopold Mozart refers to it in a letter to his son, in December, 1777 : ' 'Wasn't it possible then to give the Hafner music, your Concertore, or one of the serenades you wrote for the Lodrons, at Mannheim ? ' In some passages there are actually four solo instruments, the two violins being joined by a solo oboe and solo 'cello. ' Thanks to the bold and independent treatment of the orchestra, alike in the tuttis and in the solo passages,' says Otto Jahn , ' the whole work has the character of a symphony.'
