K 211 Violin Concerto No 2 in D

It is generally believed that the Violin Concerto No. 2 in D major K. 211 was composed by Mozart in 1775. WIKIPEDIA  But there is no certainty when he wrote his five violin concertos as he quite possibly changed the date on the manuscripts to give the impression they were written at a later date, Perhaps 1780, and then changed back to 1775. Handwriting and watermarking indicate that Concertos Nos 2 to 5 were actually written in 1775 in Salzburg. This Concerto No 2 is not as well known as his later ones. Mozart was only nineteen when he wrote this concerto. There is a serenade ­like quality to this piece.
