Mozart’s dialogue between violin and viola—here, in the hands of Orchestre de Paris soloists Philippe Aïche and David Gaillard—reaches peak emotional density in the Andante, placing this radiant and profound Sinfonia Concertante, composed when Mozart was 23 years old, on par with the masterpieces of his final period. We know that the young composer played the viola part himself, lending his early acclaim to the instrument’s uniquely touching timbre.
Brahms’s Symphony No. 2, sometimes qualified as ‘classical’, also celebrates the strings, particularly in the Adagio dominated by the cellos’ meditative lyricism, demonstrating Mozart’s significant influence on Brahms.
