K. 218 Violin Concerto No. 4 in D major,

Violin Concerto No. 4 in D major, K. 218, was composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1775 in Salzburg. Mozart was still a teenager in the service of the Salzburg court at this time. Mozart was a violinist of reasonable skill, and each of his five violin concertos seems to have been originally composed for his own use. However when Mozart relinquished his position with the court orchestra he was replaced by an altogether more skilled violinist named Antonio Brunetti. Brunetti took serious interest in playing Mozart's concertos. He took the concertos and put them back on the orchestra's performance list after revising and updating the scores.
