Celebrate Mozart's birthday with his violin music

January 27, 2009 at 8:31 PM

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on January 27, 1756. What better way to celebrate his birthday than by listening to some of his violin music played by virtuosos?

 


Heifetz (the Supreme) plays Mozart's Violin Concerto 5, second movement.

 


Perlman plays Mozart's Violin Concerto 5, part.

 


Janine Jensen plays the end of Mozart's Violin Concerto 5.

 


David Oistrakh conducts and plays Mozart's Violin Concerto 3, first movement.

 


For a hair raising conclusion, Heifetz plays the Rondo from Mozart's Serenade 7 (Haffner).

 

Indulge yourself and listen to all these clips. After all, Mozart's birthday comes but once a year.
