breaking down the concerto

In the Classical period, a concerto gave a composer the opportunity to show off not only his orchestral writing, but also his chops as a performer. It was customary for composers to premiere their new concertos (piano concertos outnumbering other kinds) with as much pomp and flair as possible. When Mozart wrote the concerto on this weekend’s program, Concerto No. 20, he was an active soloist, earning revenue from subscription concerts. He soon turned to writing operas, putting concertos on the backburner, but in the early 1780s, the concerto was Mozart’s bread and butter.

I thought it would be nice to take this opportunity to share a few of the comments from the letters we recently received.
