Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, K. 466
Marios Papadopoulos piano/conductor
On 4 March 1791, Mozart gave his last public performance. Nine months and one day later, he was dead. Those present at that performance might have sensed a farewell from the piano concerto Mozart played his last, numbered 27. Gone was the overt drama of the composer's earlier concerto in D minor, No. 20. Gone were the orchestra's trumpets and drums. In their place was a work of deep resignation and subdued gravity. Directing from the keyboard, Marios Papadopoulos and the Orchestra present a rare opportunity to hear Mozart's most moving piano concerto alongside one of his most thrilling.
