Mozart composed this fragment in Salzburg during the summer of 1779, at the same time that he wrote his popular Sinfonia concertante in E flat major K. 364 (320d). This is when Mozart had excellent string players at his disposal for the solo parts. The autograph breaks off in the first movement (Allegro) after 134 bars. Up to that point, the solo parts are notated in their entirety, but the orchestral accompaniment is sometimes missing. Robert Levin based his reconstruction on his expert knowledge of Mozart’s style and orchestral writing which he accumulated over the course of several decades.
