Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus
Bassoon Concerto in B-flat major, K.191Composer: Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus
Performance date: January 18, 2006

Date composed: 1774


Each of Mozart’s concertos for woodwind instruments (flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon) ranks among the best and most popular of its kind. His Bassoon Concerto, composed at the age of only eighteen, reveals the solo instrument’s marvelous capability to leap effortlessly across wide intervals, to sing as elegantly as any voice, and to run up and down scales with the ease of an acrobat.

The flute and the harp blend so beautifully one has to wonder why there aren’t more solo works featuring these instruments together. Mozart’s example is by far the best-known of its kind - small wonder, with its air of rococo elegance, charming melodies and poetic feeling.

Date composed: 1784


This is not one of Mozart’s best-known piano concertos (with over twenty of them, they can’t all be famous!), but in its rich sonorities, freshness, high spirit and gentle lyricism it is as delightful as any of its better-known relatives.

This is one of the greatest of Mozart’s many wonderful piano concertos. The first movement teems with melodic ideas (no fewer than eight), the slow movement is music of ravishing sweetness (used in the film Elvira Madigan), and the rondo-finale is full of high spirit.
