The Divertimento K334 features a very important first violin line, with the other parts playing subsidiary roles – very subsidiary in the case of the horns. So the work stands or falls by the standard of the first violin, which here is played with grace and a very Viennese charm by Anton Fietz. While his rubato sometimes strays into Strauss territory, the sheer warmth of the playing and its unfailing musicality make this a delight to the ear. They don't play Mozart like that any more, more's the pity!
