Piano accompaniment backing tracks
Giovanni Battista Viotti composed his 23rd Violin Concerto in 1792, and alongside his previous concerto it remains one of his most famous works. This concerto demonstrates Viotti's virtuosity as a violinist, not least in the spectacular cadenza at the end of the first movement. The second movement Andante gives the soloist a little time to breathe before the joyous finale once again calls for a sound technique and indeed a further solo cadenza.
