Piano Concerto No. 21

In the years 1785-86, Mozart was on a roll – even by his inspired standards. His works from the period dig deeper and deeper below surface entertainment to explore the human condition as he saw it. First it was the Viennese that benefitted. In Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 21, they heard his most fluent, charming, entertaining concerto yet – a work full of conversation, gameplay, imagination and verve for sparring pianist and orchestra that comes complete with an unspeakably touching slow movement.
