MOZART Violinkonzert No. 1 Kremer 4134612

Launched by a massive opening "tutti", braying horns to the fore, the first movement is the most reflective of any performance, with Kashkashian's viola probing every recess of doubt and vulnerability. Even the final "Presto", taken steadily, is tinged with wistfulness, and the "Andante" has a musing, quasi-improvisatory quality.
