EDWIN FISCHER AND ORCHESTRA
Mozart's Piano Concerto in D minor was written in 1785, when he was at the height of his powers. His had just come to stay with him and his wife in Vienna, and the very day after his arrival (that is, on February 11) heard his son play this new composition at one of his own subscription concerts. That same night the delighted father wrote to his daughter: ' Wolfgang gave a new and first-rate piano concerto at which the copyist was still working yesterday when we arrived, and your brother had not had time even to play through the rondo, as he had to look over the copyist's work. The (passionately excited) Concerto is in D minor.' father
