Four of Mozart’s five violin concertos, including the fourth, were written when the composer was a mere 19 years old. Closely resembling Baroque pieces, they preceded the composer’s mature style heard in his later concertos for the piano.

Karen Gomyo, a violinist “of rare musical command, vitality, brilliance, and intensity” (Chicago Tribune), returns by popular demand to perform this bright gem of Mozart’s. Prokofiev lifted elements of his own ballet The Prodigal Son for use in his Fourth Symphony; a sense of the Son’s restlessness can be felt in its finale.
