Violinists Lara and Scott St. John present a new Mozart recording on Lara's Ancalagon Records. The siblings St. John share the spotlight in three of the composer's violin concerti. The focal point of the album is Mozart's monumental Sinfonia Concertante, the last and greatest of his string concerti (K. 364). This piece is rarely recorded, especially in its original form with viola in scordatura. Scott St. John takes up the viola to join his sister on the recording, making this the first time the Sinfonia Concertante has ever been recorded by siblings. The remainder of the album lets each St. John take center stage. Violin Concerto No. 1 (K. 207) is led by Scott, and Lara has the solo voice in Violin Concerto No. 3 (K. 216) The innovative New York-based ensemble The Knights accompany the pair on all the works (also led by the sibling-act of conductor Eric Jacobsen and concertmaster Colin Jacobsen).

If you go to the Fuchs' recording, the first customer review continues the confusion by referring to the siblings as brothers. They were bro and sis. Joseph and Lillian did have a brother, Harry, a cellist, with whom they sometimes played trios.
Scott and Lara are no doubt big fans (and slightly taller).
