Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Piano Concerto Nr. 21 in C major

W. A. Mozart (1756 Salzburg - 1791 Vienna) wrote his Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major in Vienna in 1785. This one, along with seven others that were all composed during the years 1784 and 1786, belongs to the zenith of his instrumental compositions since they seem to combine the forms of symphony and concerto. This enabled Mozart to present himself as a pianist while doing justice to the demands of a symphonic orchestral work.
