Mozart – Violin Concerto No.1 (Gidon Kremer)

Latvian classical violinist and conductor Gidon Kremer plays Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 1 in B-flat major, K. 207. Wiener Philharmoniker (Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra) conducted by Nikolaus Harnoncourt.

The concerto was originally supposed to have been composed in 1775 (when Mozart was 19), along with the other four wholly authentic violin concerti. However, analysis of handwriting and the manuscript paper on which the concerto was written suggest that the actual date of composition might have been 1773. It has a common three-movement structure. Movements are:

  1. Allegro moderato
  2. Adagio
  3. Presto.
