Mozart(?) 6th violin concerto KV 268

June 3, 2012 at 10:12 AM

The 6th Mozart concerto is also doubtful, but just like the 7th they have been recorde by big names like Airoff, Fichtenholz, Grumiaux, Menuhin, Odnoposoff, Oistrach, Stucki, Suk en Szeryng.
Info of imslp 6th Mozart
"First published by André in 1799; contemporary writer stated work had been written around 1784 and played to the young Violinist Johann Friedrich Eck in Munich by Mozart, although Constanze stated if authentic it dated prior to this; K1 placed in works of 1776; in later 19th Century believed first and last movements might contain some Mozart material later reworked by unskilled hand; Oldman believed stylistically similar to Sinfonia Concertante K.365 and work was completed by Eck; K3 placed in 1780; K6 removed from authentic works. Comparing Concerto with known Violin Concertos by Eck, Lebermann (Musikforschung-1978) concludes works is probably by Eck and written sometime before 1790." Source Mozart forum

To me it sounds like a somewhat lesser composer familiar with Mozart's music (especially the operas?) tried to pass off their work as Mozart.
