I warned you that I was going to post a recording of this violin concerto–#3, first movement. Just a slice of perfection from Mozart, beautifully played. Stay tuned through the cadenza with all these amazing double stops and soaring scales. I wonder if she made that up or if it’s standard. It’s not on other recordings I’ve heard but I loved it.
This violinist is wonderful…both to listen to and to watch (amazing dress, but what’s up with the funky washcloth for a chin guard?). And the setting looks quite beautiful. Pretty nice birthday party for Il Papa, I’d say.
