Mozart’s dramatic Piano Concerto No. 20 to open the next series of Mozart Explored

To mark the beginning of the 2016/17 season, the London Mozart Players offered the audience the chance to choose which of Mozart’s piano concertos would be performed in the opening concert of their popular Mozart Explored series. Having cast their votes, the audience has spoken and the dramatic concerto No. 20 has been chosen.

Thank you to all who took part in the ‘Choose your favourite concerto’ competition. Congratulations to Martin Lissman, the winner of the LMP’s prize draw to win 2 tickets to the first concert in the Mozart Explored series.

About Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor

In this concerto the mood of the entire first movement is set by the contained intensity of the opening bars. Even in the Romanze, where the music is apparently simple and serene, an agitated section in G minor serves as a reminder of the overall dramatic character of the concerto.
