Mozart. Violin virtuoso
The St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Sergei Stadler will present a series of concerts dedicated to the work of W. A. ​​Mozart, the composer whose name has become the personification of a perfect musical genius. He was a unique virtuoso who distinguished himself in all musical forms of his time. Violin Virtuoso is a dedication concert to the great composer as a violin genius and innovator of the violin language.

The first half of his life, Mozart saw himself with a violin in his hands, the father of the great composer - Leopold Mozart - was a famous violinist of his time, as well as the main teacher and authority in his life. With outstanding natural data and the great role of his father in the composer's life, it is not surprising that Mozart masterfully owned the violin and had an interest in this instrument. The composer left a vast legacy of violin music: concertos, sonatas, serenades, numerous ensembles.

Mozart's violin music is closely linked to the composer's, performing and cultural traditions of his era, especially the Italian and German-Austrian schools. At the same time, he deftly synthesized the achievements of his predecessors and contemporaries, bringing them to a new artistic level. Melodic brightness, genre specificity are combined in them with original compositional solutions, which still attract listeners around the world and leave Mozart at an unattainable height of musical skill.
