Mozart’s Third

Violin music has since time immemorial been a key element in the musical art industry in the world.

It is music which is constantly related with class, sophistication and sheer elegance.

Even the dressing, movement and postures of players of violin music have always been with a touch of a certain smoothness and swagger.

The violin itself originated from Italy in the early 16th century and has over the years developed into various designs such as the electric violin, which is used in orchestra around the world in performances popularly known as violin concertos, whether live or during music recordings.

One such Violin concerto that is a musical masterpiece is the violin concerto number 3 by Mozart.

The violin concerto number 3 was composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a highly prominent and talented composer from Salzburg Austria.

At the age of just 19, Mozart had already shown talented and highly exceptional skills in playing the keyboard and the violin musical instruments.

He had already performed in front of European royalty and by the age of five and was artistically skillful in the musical art.

Mozart composed the Violin Concerto in the year 1775 and it is one of the most classical pieces of musical ingenuity that is still respected all over the world.

The concerto consists of a solo violin, two violins, a viola, a double bass, two horns, two oboes with an exception of the second movement and two flutes at the second movement.

These instruments are lyrically and cleverly blended to produce a soothing, calming and classical timepiece of musical work.

The concerto consists of three main movements, which are combined to produce the violin concerto number 3.

The Allegro movement, is the main movement which is performed in sonata form.

It opens with a G theme that is performed by an Orchestra.

Returning to a main pitch coupled up with the solo violin, the two elicit a cheerful and happy rhythm that makes an audience actively dance and get up on their feet.

The Adagio, which is in ternary form, is the second movement.

It starts by the violin imitating an Octave higher. Thereafter, in a major, winds play a motif that the violin finishes by itself by a magical ending.

Consequently, the violin begins again the main theme whilst maintaining the main key.

Here, there is a sharp melody instead of a natural sound, while returning to B minor.

The sound then shifts marvelously to A major and then D major all though the main theme.

Thereafter, the violin repeats the main theme and finishes the D major.

The end finish is something out of this world!

The coordination and returns of the violin and the orchestra is just riveting.

The final movement is the Rondeau.

This movement adds a flare of finality to a dreamy and charming musical sequence.

The movement goes on and ends at the G major and it is a fast paced movement.

In the original performance, Mozart used an Andante section and put it in the rondo and he does this in a short split time.

This leaves the audience in a roller coaster of musical ups and downs as the pace of the sounds goes up and down and finally ends in slow paced, tranquil and serene demeanor.

For lovers of concertos and orchestral music, Mozart’s concerts is the best choice for anyone looking for an upbeat yet charming, soothing yet reflective and a timeless classical yet present piece of musical work there is.
