Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante for Violin and Viola


Described as Mozart’s best concerto by MSO Principal Viola Christopher Moore, his Sinfonia Concertante places the violin and viola on the same pedestal. Although a prodigious pianist and violinist, it was the viola that Mozart loved the most, explaining this unique work. Scored for a modest orchestra but dividing strings into greater numbers and featuring a stroke of technical genius in writing the viola part to match the naturally sparkling violin, this music is incredibly rich and brilliant; the perfect platform to showcase the virtuosity of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Principal Viola, and Concertmaster Sophie Rowell.
