Description

The present cadenzas and lead-ins to Mozart's five violin concertos K 207, 211, 216, 218 and 219 attempt to present the violinist with stylistic and idiomatic solutions based upon the compositional technique of Mozart's piano concerto cadenzas. In the 18th century cadenzas were always improvised by the great composer-performers. In order to approximate the spirit of improvisation, at least two versions are always offered for each fermata. Beyond that, a maximum number of combinatorial possibilities have been purposefully built in. Thus, the player can assemble many different cadenzas from the basic alternatives. (Robert D. Levin)

Gidon Kremer on the Cadenzas to Mozart"s Violin Concertos'

It is with the warmest recommendation that I welcome the publication of Robert Levin’s cadenzas and introductions to all the violin concertos by Mozart.

Seldom have competent musicians given us a comprehensive view of the improvisatory elements in the familiar Mozart violin concertos.

It is a task which, though unglamorous and at first sight unrewarding, proves extremely difficult and is of supreme importance to the violinist.

By dint of profound knowledge and rich imagination, Robert Levin has paved the way for every violinist to explore Mozart’s world.
