I’ve watched videos of Mozart Concerto n.3 played by Perlman, Hann, Mutter and Oistrakh. None of them did the tuttis. I’m bewildered by that. I know that the tuttis aren’t taught in conservatories or by private professors. However, I thought that international solists would play them.I think it’s important, because they played the concerto imcompletely. And that makes it wrong. Yes, Perlman and Oistrakh and all of them got it wrong.
I guess they got away with it because the tuttis are still played by the orchestra. The thing is, the soloist playing that section is the diference between “all right” and “perfect”. It was fun watching Oistrakh and Mutter because they conducted the orchestra. They played the “authentic music” card, like, taking the role of the conductor as it was in Mozart’s time. What they actually lacked was playing the tutti, which has also what Mozart wanted.
