About

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is one of the few composers in the history of classical music who could demonstrate an extraordinary ability in composing music in all of the main styles, from sacred music to secular, chamber and symphonic music. The piano is a constant protagonist in the extensive work of the Salzburg master. The context of piano and orchestra concerts is the music style which most defines Mozart as an instrumental music composer, maybe even more of symphonic music. The Piano Concerto K271 in E flat, named "Jeunhomme", creates new prospectives in the context of piano concertos, pointing out how the composer had abandoned that particular style, typical of his era, in order to dictate a new taste which had to be particularly original. Some musicologists consider K414, despite the number, as the first piano and orchestra concerto ever written by Mozart in Vienna. After the first movement, which is lively even though not that exuberant, comes the second one which appears as tribute to melodrama and to his dear friend Johann Christian Bach. A sense of joy comes in the end of this work and the final Allegretto let guess the wish Mozart had to give himself during the first years of his brilliant carrier in Vienna.

The interpretation of this masterpieces is by Andrea Sacchetti, world famous pianist from Genova, and the Orchestra of Teatro Carlo Felice di Genova, directed by Fabio Luisi, one of the most valued Italian directors in the world.
