Mozart – Violin concertos K216 & K219

Two concerts from around 1775, the third and the fifth. Mozart made five of these, short pieces of around half an hour each. They’re quite entertaining to listen to, though I would recommend a slightly better performance than this one.

In my search for conductor José Luis-García I found there are two of that name, both born in 1944. One is still alive and is a film director. That is not this one. The conductor of this piece was a much beloved leader of the English Chamber Orchestra for twenty years. He died in 2011.
