ArtistsNikolaj Znaider (violin)
London Symphony Orchestra
Whilst Mozart’s five violin concertos were all written when he was a teenager, there is no denying that the young composer’s growth in confidence and maturity is audible. A step up from his Third, Mozart’s Fourth Violin Concerto allows the instrument to take the lead, his orchestra providing a supporting role. Widely considered the most ‘grown up’ of his violin concertos, Mozart’s Fifth finishes with a spirited rondo, its solo’s leaping notes and exotic ornamentation leading to its nickname, ‘Turkish’.
Speaking of his admiration for these works, Znaider said: ‘For me Mozart is the greatest composer, because he was able to express everything that Mahler was able to express in one hour and twenty minutes, that Wagner could do in five hours, Bruckner in seventy-two minutes, in twenty-three, twenty-four minutes. He could express the yearning and the desire and the pain of human existence and yet it felt so easy.’
‘Znaider demonstrated his musical prowess’ - Bachtrack
‘Znaider’s virtuosity [is] obvious.’ - The Guardian
‘It was abundantly clear that Znaider is equally at home as a conductor’ - Classical Source
