"Mozart's violin concertos are to a large extent a reflection of the taste of the aristocratic society of his age. They are music which makes its foremost appeal by the elegance and supreme fluency of the writing and addresses itself to a cultivated sensibility but touches only very rarely - in contrast to his mature piano concertos - the deeper strings of emotion." - from liner notes
 
"Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto justly reckons among the prized possessions of every violinist's repertoire. Together with the violin concertos of Beethoven and Brahms, it forms the great triad among nineteenth century works for solo violin and orchestra. True, it does not aspire to the classical grandeur of the Beethoven concerto nor does it show the symphonic elaboration of Brahms' but it possesses a most alluring charm and lyrical grace of its own. Through its first two movements there runs a vein of gentle melancholy as characteristic of Mendelssohn's genius - Wagner read into this an expression of his Jewishness - as is the elfin lightness and glitter of the Finale. Besides, every bar of the solo part proclaims the truly violinistic nature of its conception." - from liner notes
 
Mozart wrote 27 piano concertos but only six for the violin. This discrepancy in numbers is to be explained by the fact that his favorite instrument was the piano on which he was indeed one of the great virtuosos of his time while the solo violin held only a limited and temporary attraction for him. The first five violin concertos were composed in Salzburg in 1775 when Mozart was a boy of 19, and the sixth followed two years later after which his interest in the genre ceased. The precise occasions for which he wrote them is unknown - possibly for his own use, but, more probably, for Gaetano Brunetti who was the leader of the Salzburg court orchestra.
