Although Mozartís five violin concertos represent only a very small part of his output (when compared to the 27 piano concertos and the 41 symphonies), they nevertheless belong to the core repertoire of all violinists. As with his piano concertos, Mozartís violin concertos were all written in his younger years and are built on a constant dialogue between the solo instrument and the orchestra. Even in the first concerto, the violin is integrated into the orchestral texture, which in itself is much more than a mere accompaniment.

Gil Shaham, one of todayís foremost violinists, creates gems of performances with these works. He is accompanied by the SWR Symphony Orchestra under Nicholas McGegan, who is renowned for his expertise in historically informed performance style.

Internationally renowned violinist Gil Shaham records Mozartís complete violin concertos for the first time.

One of the first recordings from the new SWR Symphony Orchestra, which was formed in 2016 following the merger of the SWR Symphony Orchestra Baden-Baden and Freiburg and the SWR Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra.

Conductor Nicholas McGegan, noted for his expertise in historically informed performance style, works here with reduced forces of the SWR Symphony Orchestra, continuing the practice established by Sir Roger Norrington.
