What was classical music on Clarkson’s Farm, Season 2, Episode 1? Listen, it’s beautiful

One of the many cool things about the new season of Clarkson’s Farm is the plethora of different genres of music used on the show’s soundtrack. Everything from classic rock to classical.

One of the prettiest pieces of classical music ever composed, and one featured on season 2 of Clarkson’s Farm this week is the music used on the first episode as Kaleb and Jeremy are harvesting — Clarkson’s Farm, Season 2, Episode 1, “Surviving“.

That piece of music is Violin Concerto No. 3 In G Major, Kv 216: I. Allegro. A piece that was played by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Violin Concerto No. 3 was composed by a famous composer from my neck of the woods — Austria.

In this case, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who composed Violin Concerto No. 3 In G Major, Kv 216: I. Allegro when he was just 19-years-old in 1775.

It has since gone on to become one of Mozart’s most recognized compositions, and one you often hear Austrian classical musicians perform.

In the last century, the concerto has been recorded by many notable violinists, including Yehudi Menuhin with the now-defunct Orchestra Symphonique de Paris in 1935, Itzhak Perlman with the Vienna Philharmonic in 1983, and most recently with Viktoria Mullova playing violin and accompanied by Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s performance of Violin Concerto No. 3 was released in 2009. The orchestra was established in 1946, and has been in existence ever since.

Listen to Violin Concerto No. 3 as heard on Clarkson’s Farm in the video below, and on the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2009 Mozart album.
