Violin, piano (solo: vl - - - str)
Composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). Edited by Friedrich Hermann. Arranged by Friedrich Hermann. Edition Breitkopf.

From a letter sent by Leopold Mozart to his son, it would appear that Wolfgang Amadeus delivered this Adagio as a single movement to the Salzburg violinist Antonio Brunetti in 1776 after Brunetti found the original middle movement too scholarl. Classical period. Piano reduction. Breitkopf and Haertel #EB-2868. Published by Breitkopf and Haertel (BR.EB-2868).

Item Number: BR.EB-2868

ISBN 979-0-004-16135-7. 9 x 12 in inches.

There is considerable evidence to support the claim that the present Adagio in E major is an alternative middle movement intended for the well-known A-major Violin Concerto K. 219. Ultimately, Mozart decided to leave the work (written in 1775) as it was, without change.

The violin part of the present edition contains - also in the tutti sections - the upper part of the orchestra, thus leaving it up to the soloist to decide whether he should pause here or join in.
