Wind set. Composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). Solo concerto. Orchester-Bibliothek (Orchestral Library). 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 scholarly. ". Classical. Wind parts. Breitkopf and Haertel #OB 4854-30. Published by Breitkopf and Haertel (BR.OB-4854-30).

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.
