LISTEN TO THE PART 2 OF EMILY REESE'S INTERVIEW WITH RBP

Violinist Rachel Barton Pine is back to talk about cadenzas and Turkish music in Mozart's Violin Concerti on this week's episode of Learning to Listen. Mozart wrote five concerti for violin, before he turned 20. Although they all follow the "fast-slow-fast" form (an up-tempo movement, followed by a slower one, followed by another peppy movement), each concerto is unique.

In a broader sense, a concerto often has a "cadenza" at some point, a point in the music where the ensemble stops and the soloist continues. The soloist tends to play alone, in a virtuosic style, for several seconds (even minutes, in some cases). Rachel will chat about what cadenzas were like in the 18th century, and she'll also delve into why Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5 is nicknamed "Turkish".
