2019 Tchaikovsky Comp. violin competitor Ravil Islyamov plays Mozart’s VC # 5, and 2019 piano Comp. 2nd prize winner Mao Fujita plays Mozart’s PC # 20 with Gergiev,Mariinsky,Nov.2,2019 in Moscow. I did not recognize the cadenzas in the first and last movs. of the PC ( Busoni ?Saint-Seans? ), nor did I care for their style , nor did I care for Fujita’s often “precious” approach to the music in the first two movs. , but I may err in that respect ; final mov. was fine:
