Kristóf Baráti (violin) PKF – Prague Philharmonia
This ‘grand-concept’ concert trilogy in which Kristóf Baráti and Prague Philharmonia perform Mozart’s entire collection of violin concertos winds up with two of the composer’s best-known pieces. The G major work parades harmonic bravura worthy of the mature Mozart, as he tips over the then unwritten rules of classical harmonic theory and paddles around the keys. The Violin Concerto in A major is considered among the greatest masterpieces both in its extent and inventiveness. No wonder that many remember this piece as ‘The Turkish’ violin concerto, given that the character of motifs in the final movement bears a close resemblance to the Rondo alla Turca from the piano sonata in the same key, while the principal theme from the first movement may remind opera buffs of Constanze’s famous aria from The Abduction from the Seraglio.
