Mozart wrote his Adagio and Fugue for Strings based on a fugue for two pianos written in 1783, to which he added an adagio. The piece offers the keys to an era in which contrapuntal textures prevailed–as is the case of his string quartets, written during the same period–, and it played a decisive role in later work. His Violin Concerto No. 3 is an earlier composition, written at the age of 19 some eight years after his first creative forays into concertos. Mozart revolutionised the genre as no one else would do, and Violin Concerto No. 3 was written during the period of his greatest dedication to compositions for violin and orchestra and to performing in the same year that he wrote his five concertos. It marks a turning point in his work that would influence all his later compositions.
When Beethoven wrote Symphony No. 4, he was in a stage of creative maturity, undergoing a booming period of productivity that led to the composition of some of his major works, such as his famous Rasumovsky string quartets. The outcome is a brilliant symphony, conspicuous for its formal innovations. Premiered at the home of his patron, the Prince of Lobkowitz, it was only eclipsed by the fame that Beethoven’s Symphonies No. 3 and 5 achieved.
