The London Symphony Orchestra’s LSO Live label has this week announced the CD release of ‘Mozart: Violin Concertos Nos. 4 & 5’.
The first of two discs to explore all five Mozart violin concertos, the new album features Danish-Israeli violinist Nikolaj Znaider leading the London Symphony Orchestra in Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 4 in D Major and No. 5 in A Major.
“For me, Mozart is the greatest composer … because he was able to express everything that Mahler was able to express in one hour and twenty minutes, that Wagner could do in five hours and Bruckner in seventy-two minutes … but in twenty-three to twenty-four minutes …” Nikolaj has said.
“Mozart could express the yearning and the desire and the pain of human existence … and yet it felt so easy,” he has said.
