Rondo for violin & orchestra in B flat major, K. 269

Mozart – Violin Concerto No. 1 in B flat, K. 207

Mozart – Violin Concerto No. 1 in B flat, K. 207
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart‘s Violin Concerto No. 1 in B flat major, K. 207, was originally supposed to have been composed in 1775 (when Mozart was 19), along with the other four wholly authentic violin concerti. However, analysis of handwriting and the manuscript paper on which the concerto was written suggest that the actual date of composition might have been 1773. It has a common three-movement structure. Movements are:
1. Allegro Moderato
2. Adagio
and 3. Presto,
in the usual fast-slow-fast structure. The concerto is full of brilliant passage work with running sixteenth notes and is generally characterized by high spirits. The Rondo in B-flat, K. 269 for violin and orchestra, is also connected to this concerto. It was intended to replace the finale movement, and was composed to fulfill the recommendation of Antonio Brunetti, a violinist in Salzburg at the time. Nonetheless, the concerto is typically performed with the original finale, and the K. 269 Rondo remains a separate concert-piece.

Today’s Birthday: ANNE OF AUSTRIA, QUEEN OF FRANCE (1601)

Anne of Austria, Queen of France (1601)

Neglected by her husband, French King Louis XIII, Anne of Austria stirred up controversy with flirtatious indiscretions. After her seemingly treasonous correspondence with Spain, her husband’s principal minister, Cardinal Richelieu, attempted to limit her influence. When Louis died, Anne was declared sole regent of their son, Louis XIV—contrary to her husband’s wishes—and strove to ensure his absolute power. What did she do that was hailed at the time as “a marvel when it was least expected”?More… Discuss


This Day in the Yesteryear: SHAKA ZULU IS ASSASSINATED (1828)

Shaka Zulu Is Assassinated (1828)

A skilled warrior, Shaka established himself as head of the Zulu circa 1816 and soon made them the dominant power in southeastern Africa. He was ruthless before his mother’s death in 1827, but after, he became positively savage. He had at least 7,000 people executed for being insufficiently grief-stricken, put to death any couple found to have conceived during the mourning period, and even slaughtered cows so that their calves would know the loss of a mother. Who ultimately assassinated Shaka? More… Discuss



Molasses Spill Chokes Hawaii Harbor

Unfortunately, we know all too well the damage an oil spill can do to an ecosystem, but how about molasses? The sweet, sticky stuff used in cookies, candies, and other tasty treats has caused an environmental disaster in Honolulu Harbor. A massive spill from a molasses pipeline earlier this month sent hundreds of thousands of gallons of the heavy syrup into the harbor’s waters, killing thousands of fish. Unlike oil, molasses sinks in water, and experts have no way of removing molasses once it has been spilled. The full impact of the spill on marine life will not be known for some time. More… Discuss





The vaguely defined field of psychogeography involves reflection on the effect of environment on one’s emotions and behavior. The concept emerged in the 1950s when French Lettrists and Situationists, finding contemporary architecture physically and ideologically restrictive, reimagined the city. Their perspective likely descended from the Dadaists and Surrealists while also drawing upon Charles Baudelaire’s concept of urban wandering. How is psychogeography relevant in the modern world? More… Discuss
