Beneath the simplicity of Mozart’s final piano concerto lies one of the most subtle and perfect architectural structures in music. Composed less than a year before Mozart’s untimely death, this concerto evokes a variety of intensely personal and painful experiences. By turns mysterious, luminous and tragic, this kaleidoscope of sound is magically held together by a blend of elegance and poignancy.
