W.A. Mozart: Violin Concerto No.4 in D major K.218 (Violin & Piano)

Books | Violin, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Bärenreiter
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Mozart composed the majority of his works for solo string instruments and orchestra during the years 1773 to 1779. Especially important in this context are the years 1773 and 1775, which witnessed the creation of the five concertos for violin and orchestra as well as several single movements for the same scoring. The reasons for this flourish of activity in this domain lie partly in the fact that Mozart, who still occupied the post of concertmaster to the Prince-Archbishop, was either obliged or inspired to provide such works for special occasions during this long period spent in Salzburg. But another reason was certainly the possibility of experimenting with all the new compositional techniques acquired during his third trip to Italy and his stay of several months in Vienna from July to September 1773.

The piano reduction of Mozart’s D major violin concerto is easier to play, uncluttered and practical with page turns where you need them and where necessary fold-out pages.

The solo part gives players the critical Urtext of the New Mozart Edition. A prepared performance part is also included with bowings, fingerings and performance practice comments. An additional brochure is included with todays most performed cadenzas, "Eingänge" and fermata embellishments.

This collection offers players a spectrum of styles available in no other publication.

          I like the consideration given to players in that the pages are set out in such a way that there are fold outs so that there are no awkward turns. Many publishers allow turns to happen in the midst of runs of semi quavers!! But this publication is ideal. Not only this but there is a bowed and fingered copy in addition to the ursatz one and also a cadenza book - 3 books for the price! I can well recommend this!!
