Belgian violinist Sylvia Huang became a laureate of the Queen Elisabeth Competition in May 2019. Her “true lyricism and moving musicality, her simplicity and sensibility” (Le Soir) are a perfect fit with Mozart's 5th Violin Concerto.
It is well known that Mozart was born with musical spoon in his mouth and his father, Leopold, was taking Wolfgang on regular study trips to Italy. There his interest and love for the violin was further stimulated – to such an extent that the child prodigy composed no fewer than five violin concertos in 1775. With his 5th Violin Concerto Mozart broke away from the prevailing models, in a work full of imagination, originality and genius.
