NPR logo Mozart



Audio will be available later today.

Nobody knows for sure why Mozart wrote four violin concertos in the last six months of 1775 — but we're glad he did. Vladimir Spivakov is the soloist and conductor in the Violin Concerto No. 2 in D Major, with the Moscow Virtuosi. They're in concert in Phoenix.
