About This Performance
Although there is some disagreement about when Mozart composed Piano Concerto No. 27, it is the last work he composed in the form, a genre that he had elevated to the highest levels of art, just as he had with opera. An interesting characteristic of this forward-looking work is its thematic integration of the movements, which became so important in the 19th century.
Mozart’s final symphony, which he may have never heard, concludes with a magnificent movement in which his many themes combine in 5-part invertible counterpoint, a sweet moment for music nerds.
