Mozart: Sinfonia Concertante

Duration: 27:54

In 1778 Mozart 'discovered' the sinfonia concertante, or concertos involving more than one soloist, in Mannheim, played by the fine orchestra there. Back in Salzburg a year or so later he wrote one of his own – the Sinfonia Concertante in E flat (K.364), which is one of the greatest and most original of all his concertos. In this workshop and performance, Charles Hazlewood conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, with soloists Lesley Hatfield (violin) and Steven Burnard (viola).
