Mozart’s piano concertos draw upon his experience and ambition in the genre of opera, weaving arias into many of his slow movements, buffo antics and rejoicings into finales, and contests, arguments, duets or dialogues between soloist and orchestra throughout the works. The concertos begin with orchestral themes (as many as 7), each taking its proper place and function in a sonata design, like a character in a drama. The Piano Concerto No. 11 in F major, K. 413 is one of three composed in 1782 that Mozart described as “brilliant, pleasing to the ear and natural without being vapid.” The Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor K. 466 expresses the idea of the concerto as a dramatic form. The Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major, K. 467 is one of the most lyrical of Mozarts piano concertos. The slow mvmt provided the “Elvira Madigan” movie theme.
