Evening Masterwork: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 20 in d for October 27, 2022

In his lifetime, Mozart composed 27 piano concertos – and out of all of those, only two of them are in a minor key. The Piano Concerto No. 20 in d minor, is probably the stormier of the two. Completed in 1785, a 25-year old Beethoven loved the work, having performed it publicly with his own cadenzas. In fact, audiences came to regard Mozart’s concerto as “Beethovenish”, quite a compliment in the age of Beethoven. The Piano Concerto No. 20 by Mozart, our Evening Masterwork tonight at 7, on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
