Mozart (?) 7th violin concerto

May 30, 2012 at 8:38 PM

Mozart wrote 5 official violin concerto's but also a 6th and 7th and Adelaide violin concerto. Here the 7th. This composition is possibly not by Mozart, but nevertheless fine music, here played by David Oistrach. Information from imslp

Dated supposedly on (lost) autograph Jul 16, 1777 in Salzburg; possibly sketched out by Mozart and finished by Sauzay or Baillot; perhaps played in Salzburg on Jul 26, 1777, however authenticity doubtful. Bär (MISM 1963) believed written for FX Kolb in Salzburg in 1777; Mahling (MJB 1978) states possibly it is a draft by Mozart, or considered it could be a copy by Mozart of another master's concerto. NMA (1980) placed it in Works of Doubtful Authenticity; Levin (Who Wrote Mozart 4-Wind Concertante? 1989) gives nod toward authenticity by stating Baillot copy lists instruments in exact order used by Mozart, and with Hn solmisation same as other Mozart Concerti f/Vn

The Adelaide concerto wasn't Mozart's. Composer was Marius Casadesus, a "practical joker", Kreisler's style. There's a fantastic recording by young Menuhin.
