Accompanied by the Wiener Philharmoniker (Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra), Latvian classical violinist and conductor Gidon Kremer plays Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 1 in B-flat major, K. 207. Conductor: Nikolaus Harnoncourt.
Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 1
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 suggests that the actual date of composition might have been 1773.
The concerto has a common three-movement structure. Movements are:
