Cadenza for Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5

September 9, 2018, 10:04 AM · Hi guys, I am learning Mozart's Violin Concerto No.5 right now, and I am wondering if Joseph Joachim's or Sam Franko's cadenza (for 1st movt) would be easier to play? Thanks a lot!

September 10, 2018, 2:06 AM · Ok thanks for the advice guys! Actually I think the Joachim sounds nicer too.
