Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major, written in 1785 during his time in Vienna, was premiered by the composer as soloist in one of his very popular concerts featuring his new pieces. A contrasting work to his dramatic D minor concerto (No. 20) written earlier that year, the C major concerto is filled with exuberant and joyous music, yet still has beautiful and poignant moments such as the nocturnal second movement. In the hands of Italian pianist and imaginative Mozart-interpreter Federico Colli, expect fireworks in the finale of this great concerto!
