Mozart composed his violin concertos in 1773 (K207) and 1775 (K211, 216, 218 and 219). These five works and the three single movements recorded here have been passed down complete and verified as authentic. The genesis of these works is closely linked to Mozart’s work as Kapellmeister at the Salzburg court, ending with probably the most notable kick-out in music history.

Mozart scored no solo cadenzas for his violin concertos; in the practice of the timethey were improvised. All the cadenzas on these recordings are by Baiba Skride.

‘Baiba is such an intuitive player. She has this rare quality of discovering the music as we play. So she never plays exactly the same. There is a wonderful sense of creating, discovering and finding new ways.’ – Eivind Aadland

‘I know that there are so many different and super recordings of Mozart, but I think it is important to enjoy the music you have heard a thousand times and will hear a thousand times more with new eyes and simply allow the music to play.’ – Baiba Skride
