Incredibly, Mozart wasn't even 20 years old when he wrote this concerto. The violin is firmly centre stage and you get to really appreciate how clever Mozart’s melodies were without all the orchestral stuff getting in the way. The first movement is a dainty affair (very Downton, actually), but it's the final movement where the violin really gets to show off.

This great symphony is written in the key of G minor and the melancholy feel of this key pervades the first movement, although other movements are lighter in mood. The work comprises the usual four movements, but what is slightly unusual is that Mozart uses sonata form to structure the first, second and fourth movements. The third movement is the usual minuet and trio. This piece was created.
What I find so neat is that these pieces were written when Mozart was between the ages of 5-8 years old. Impressive for a small child! His father inevitably helped him write down the actual music, but it’s still quite the accomplishment. Everything in this book is between a Henle level 1 and 2. In the RCM grade rankings, they all fall between a grade 1 and 5 level. The easiest pieces in this.
This is the second of Mozart's six completed piano trios, composed ten years after the first, K. 254 (1776). However, since that earlier work is more appropriately a divertimento -- written as light music for his then-employer, Archbishop Heironymous -- K. 496 is the first of Mozart's trios to realize its full potential as chamber music, and therefore his first real entry in the genre.
MOZART, W.A.: Piano Trios, Vol. 2 (Kungsbacka Trio) Composed in 1788 at the peak of his creative powers, though at a time of both artistic success and looming personal crisis, Mozart’s last three piano trios are masterpieces whose prevailing character of congenial gaiety is heightened by poignant undercurrents of lyrical melancholy.
Mozart was an Austrian composer. He was born in Salzburg in 1756 and later settled in Vienna. Today his compositions are some of the most popular and well-known pieces from the Classical period.
Mozart's production for piano and orchestra are numbered from 1 to 27. The first four numbered concertos are early works. The movements of these concertos are arrangements of keyboard sonatas by various contemporary composers (Raupach, Honauer, C.P.E. Bach). Concertos 7 and 10 are compositions for three and two pianos respectively. The remaining twenty-one are original compositions for solo.
Mozart Piano Concertos, compositions by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart not only numerous in quantity and excellent in quality but also standing very early in the existence of the genre and, indeed, of the piano itself. Mozart’s concerti for solo piano and orchestra served as a standard model for composers.
The G Major Sonata is the first of a group of six sonatas for piano and violin (K301 - K306) composed in Mannheim and Paris during the course of the tour undertaken by Mozart and his mother during 1777 and 1778. The genesis of their composition apparently derived from early in the tour while the couple were in Munich in the fall of 1777.
In gratitude for Rudolph's generosity, Beethoven dedicates far more compositions to him than to anyone else, including some of his most important works (4th Piano Concerto, 5th Piano Concerto (Emperor), 26th Piano Sonata (Les Adieux) op.81a, 29th Piano Sonata (Hammerklavier) op.106, 32nd Piano Sonata op.111, Violin Sonata op.96, Archduke Piano Trio (named for Rudolph), Missa Solemnis, Grosse.
