Although the prevailing image of Mozart the performer is that of a pianist, the part played by the violin in his early development as a musician was hardly less important. How, indeed, could it be otherwise when his father and teacher, Leopold, was the author of Violinschule, one of the eighteenth century’s most influential treatises on violin technique? Accounts of the child-prodigy’s triumphs around Europe suggest that, at that stage at least, he was equally proficient on violin and keyboard, and right into the mid-1770s his letters home to his family contained reports of public appearances as a violinist. ‘I played Vanhal’s Violin Concerto in B flat, which was unanimously applauded’, he wrote from Augsburg in 1777. ‘In the evening at supper I played my Strasbourg Concerto, which went like oil. Everyone praised my beautiful, pure tone.’
