The circumstances around Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s composition of his final piano concerto are a little mysterious: it was probably given on a program only marginally devoted to Mozart, and Mozart himself may or may not have performed it. The work also seems to reflect Mozart’s increasing uncertainty about his life and composing career, and he might have been recycling themes for other commissions around the same time. Using narrator, actors and other theatrical devices, this Beyond the Score® presentation proposes the circumstances which led to the creation of this soulful, quietly revolutionary concerto, performed by Jeffrey Kahane.
