Mozart Violin Concert No. 5

Leora Zeitlin

When he was growing up in Mexico, violinist Daniel Vega-Albela fell in love with the music of Mozart, and has been playing it ever since. This Sunday, he will perform Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5 with the New Horizons Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Dr. Marianna Gabbi. “Mozart was probably my first love,” he said in this interview with Gabbi and Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin. “I’ve been playing this concerto ever since I was a kid. It’s amazing to see that every time I pick it up again, I find something different. I can continue to grow with this concerto.”
