Wolfgang Amadeus MOZART (1756-1791), 5th violin concerto:
Bram, can you tell us who the soloist is?
Bram, what a great performance. Who is the soloist ?
The soloist is not relevant. I only want to show the notes of all violin concerto's I know.
YouTube lists it as being David Oistrakh.
Thanks for listing these - I saw this at 6 am, dowloaded the music from IMSLP, printed and by 7.30 I was reading through it. Amazing how much easier reading is when the music has been ingrained into your head all your life :D
Lots of fun - and, as mentioned above, what an amazing rendition. To me the most incredible thing is the lightness of touch combined with an almost casual yet authoratative amazingly musical control. Mozart would surely have approved...
the version I downloaded uses a lot of harmonics (for E and A; which certainly makes shifts easier) and I guess its a Peter's edition. But is it known whether players used harmonics at that time?
