Amadeus Mozart - Piano Concerto No. 26 in D major, K. 537 "Coronation" (Cadenzas by Edwin Fischer)
24:49 Allegro
39:27 Larghetto
45:00 Allegretto

The Bavarian capital of Munich was always one of Mozart's favourites places - it saw important performances of many of his major instrumental works and hosted the world premiere of his monumental opera seria "Inomeneo, re di Creta".
The first printed edition of his concerto K. 537, written for Munich, is remarkable for the fact that it doesn't contain all the notes of the solo part. This method prevented the music from falling into the hand of dishonest copyists, but more importantly, it reflects the fact that pianists were pretty much expected to know what the composer wanted from a musical sketch called upon them to improvise the necessary harmonies, sometimes at sight.

In our performance, given at Munich's Residence Palace, the musical adviser of "Mozart on Tour", Maestro Wilhelm Keitel leads member of the Bavarian Radio Orchestra with Homero Francesch at the keyboard.
