In October Mozart was appointed an honorary Konzertmeister at the Salzburg court. Still only 13, Mozart had by now acquired considerable fluency in the musical language of his time, and he was especially adept at imitating the musical equivalent of local dialects.

The Italian tours Mastery of the Italian operatic style was a prerequisite for a successful international composing career, and the Austrian political dominion over northern Italy ensured that doors would be open there to Mozart.

Mozart, Violin Concerto No. The work was for him undemanding and by no means compatible with his abilities.
