"Mozart Violin Concerto nos. 1, 2, 5"

What looks like a CD that was part of a comprehensive collection of Deutsche Grammophon Mozart CDs, this is a beautiful recording of two lesser-known Mozart concertos and one of his warhorses.
The Mozart violin concertos are erroneously thought of as 'easier' concertos because they're often some of the first pieces of major literature that a young violinist would learn. But wisdom teaches that those things that are often thought of as the easiest are often the most difficult. So it is with Mozart's music.
