WILLIAM MURDOCH (Pianoforte) and Orchestra
Pianoforte Concerto in D Minor (K.466), No. 20
Mozart Allegro ; Romanze ; Rondo, allegro assai
By an odd coincidence, which did not occur to Mr. Murdoch until after he had chosen the concerto, this is the anniversary of its first performance, on February 11, 1785, in Vienna. Mozart had finished the composition of it only the day before, and up till the last moment copyists were busy writing out the parts. The were ready, though not in time for Mozart even to try over the last movement; but despite the hurry, the performance came off, as Mozart's usually did, triumphantly. The occasion was one of the subscription concerts he was giving then, and he was himself the soloist.
