Mozart – Sinfonia Concertante – Perlman, Violin; Zukerman, Viola

Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante for Violin, Viola and Orchestra in E-flat major, was written in 1779 while Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was on a tour of Europe that included Mannheim and Paris. Mozart had been experimenting with the sinfonia concertante genre and this work can be considered his most successful realization in this cross-over genre between symphony and concerto. – Itzhak Perlman WikipediaItzhak Perlman WebsitePinchas Zukerman Wikipedia
