Mozart Piano Concerto No. 13 in C major, K. 415
Mozart Piano Concerto No. 19 in F major, K. 459
Mozart Piano Concerto No. 26 in D major, K. 537, “Coronation”
Celebrate the beauty and pathos of Mozart genius. Concerto No. 13, which was premiered in 1783 at his own subscription series in Vienna, features festive trumpets and kettledrums, heralding Mozart’s roguish wit. He performed No. 19 and No. 26 during the 1790 coronation festivities for Emperor Leopold II in Frankfurt. With its bold orchestration for the wind instruments, the former beautifully displays the talent of LACO’s wind virtuosos; the latter, although nicknamed “Coronation,” was written in 1788 – the year the impoverished Amadé and Constanze moved to the outskirts of Vienna.
