Mozart had to deal with the problem of being an ordinary person and at the same time an extremely sensitive musician. Was it difficult to accept himself? Did he frighten himself when he realised his extraordinary talent? Was his humour helpful in accepting himself? In the search for answers to these questions, many themes can be discerned that can be symbolic and meaningful for any generation and at any time.
In 1775, the 19-year-old Mozart was commissioned by his employer, Prince-Archbishop Count Colloredo of Salzburg, with whom he was in permanent disagreement, to compose a piece of princely chamber music for the evening entertainment...
Violin Concerto No. 5 in A major, KV 219 - Allegro Aperto (beginning to recapitulation)
A film by
hannes M. Schalle
The composition for it, the Violin Concerto K. 219, was written in a highly emotional phase of his life, carried by positivism and melancholy, celebration of life and farewell. Mozart was on a spiritual flight from his unloved place of work, Salzburg, and had it been up to him, he would certainly have composed something else. But in this way a utility music was created, which, however, does not characterize the artistic impetuosity of the master.
Today one hears "only" the sound of the richest of his five violin concertos with which Mozart concluded his time as an active violinist.
These conflicts were the basis of the visualization of the opus KV219, realized on the original sites of its creation and premiere.
