Mozart - Violin concerto N 1 B-dur K207. You can download the PDF sheet music Mozart - Violin concerto N 1 B-dur K207 on this page. Concerto for Violin and Orchestra no. 1 in B flat major, K. 207
1. Allegro moderato
2. Adagio
3. Presto
The First Violin Concerto, K. 207, was completed "a Salisburgo li 14 di Aprile 1773". This work is straightforward in style, with little motivic elaboration or polyphonic writing. The two oboes are only occasionally separated from the violins, as in the Finale, while the horns are introduced solely to add sonority. This is, however, an altogether charming and agreeable solo concerto, rewarding for the soloist. It belongs to the Rococo style of the transition from the Baroque age to that of Classicism.

The Allegro moderato with its "sighing" figures on the strong beats of the bar and its proud, syncopated minims (half-notes) in the principal theme is clearly a product of the "galant" style, and when in the Adagio a beautiful melody soars high above the zephyr-like murmuring of the second violin semiquavers (16th-notes), the young composer has adopted the "empfindsamer Stil", the other idiom of that time, with its emphasis on tender feeling. The Presto scampers by with sprightly grace, interrupted by vigorous passages in unison. The solo violin plays high above the sparse accompanying texture, often of repeated quavers (eighth-notes). In the soloist's long chains of semiquavers and triplets Mozart pays tribute to such earlier violinist composers as Pugnani and Nardini, while the cantabile element, never neglected even during running passages, is the fruit of the training received from his father: "He plays something difficult, but one does not recognize that it is difficult . . . and so it should be", he wrote about a violinist of the Mannheim orchestra.
