The early, beautiful sounding Mozart in a flawless interpretation by the Austrian violinist and conductor Wolfgang Schneiderhan with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

Wolfgang Schneiderhan, began studying violin with his mother at age 3 and first performed in public two years later. His first major concert was in Copenhagen, at age 11. He became concertmaster of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra at 17, when he was already a distinguished interpreter of the music of Mozart and Beethoven. He was concertmaster of the Vienna Philharmonic from 1937 to 1949. In 1956 Mr. Schneiderhan founded the Lucerne Festival Strings ensemble in Switzerland with Rudolf Baumgartner, and in 1992 he initiated the Fritz Kreisler competition for young musicians at the Vienna Konzerthaus.

The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the LP and the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.
