Info for Mozart: Violin Concertos Nos. 3-5
After Mozart’s youth symphonies, the Freiburger Barockorchester returns to the composer with a ‘portrait of the artist as a young man’: concertante music this time, with the last three violin concertos, composed when he was twenty years old.
Melodically inventive, structurally rich, and showing complexity in the dialogue between the soloist and the orchestra, these works represent important milestones, not only in Mozart’s output, but also in the concerto genre in general.
Often recorded, these concertos are presented here in a new version: in accordance with practices of the time, Kristian Bezuidenhout improvises a pianoforte part, while conducting the orchestra, over which the violin of Gottfried von der Goltz, an artist at the height of his powers, soars with great finesse. A totally new and exciting approach to these works.
Gottfried von der Goltz, baroque violin
Kristian Bezuidenhout, conductor
Gottfried von der Goltz
has made an internationally respected name for himself as a baroque violinist and as artistic director of the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra. As was customary in the 18th century, he conducts the FBO from the concertmaster's podium.
His repertoire ranges from the early Baroque to the musical present, illustrated by a broad discography that proves him to be an immensely versatile and flexible musician. Especially with CD recordings of the long unjustly forgotten music of the Dresden Baroque and the four Bach sons, Gottfried von der Goltz has earned a reputation among experts as a specialist.
In addition to his numerous appearances with the FBO, Gottfried von der Goltz works regularly (as guest conductor and as soloist) with the Berlin Baroque Soloists, the Württemberg Chamber Orchestra Heilbronn, the hr Symphony Orchestra, the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and other ensembles. For several years he was closely associated with the Norsk Barokkorkester as artistic director.
Gottfried von der Goltz also has a great passion for chamber music, which he pursues in various formations. As a professor at the Hochschule für Musik Freiburg, he is a sought-after teacher of baroque and modern violin.
