Mozart – Sonata No. 32 – Oistrach, Violin; Badura-Skoda, Piano

Mozart’s Violin Sonata No. 32 in B-Flat Major (K. 454) was composed in Vienna on April 21, 1784. The sonata was written for a violin virtuoso Regina Strinasacchi of Mantua to be performed by them together at a concert in the Kärntnerthor Theater in Vienna on April 29, 1784. Although Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart had the piano part securely in his head, he did not give himself enough time to write it out, and thus it was performed with a sheet of blank music paper in front of him in order to fool the audience.  – David Oistrakh WikipediaPaul Badura-Skoda WikipediaPaul Badura-Skoda Website
