Danish violinist-turned-conductor Nikolaj Znaider, who won the prestigious Reine Elisabeth Competition in Brussels in 1997, has decided to record Mozart’s complete violin concertos, conducted from the violin with the London Symphony Orchestra. Znaider has a particularly strong relationship with that orchestra, with which he has been performing as a soloist since 2005, and as a conductor since 2011. For his Mozart project, he has of coursed reduced the orchestra’s string section to a more Mozartian, nearly chamberlike size, so that the solo violin weaves seamlessly into the delicate musical fabric, as if it were some kind of “primus inter pares”.
