The viola became Mozart’s most beloved instrument. The distinctly mellow, plaintive sound of the instrument saturates the composer’s sublime Sinfonia Concertante in E flat major for Violin and Viola, a piece that glows from within when the instruments aren’t chasing each other down. Mozart also remained found of his Symphony No. 29 long after it was written. The symphonic coming-of-age oozes well-bred charm on the surface but carries a characteristically Mozartian sadness and depth that cannot help but leave their mark. The composer’s best-known earworm opens this portrait of music’s supreme combiner of energy and grace.
