Concerto for violin and orchestra No. 3 in G major, K. 216

Composition date:



The Violin Concerto K. 216 is one of the five concerti that Mozart dedicated to this instrument. It was composed in 1775, like the other four violin concerti (except maybe for the First Violin Concerto, which, according to some specialists, dated back to 1773). Thanks to its first theme, the Violin Concerto No. 3 is now one of the composer's most popular violin concerti.

The violinists competing at the XV International Tchaikovsky Competition must perform, during the second round of the Competition, one of the three last violon concerti by Mozart.
