Amadeus Mozart - Piano Concerto No. 27 in B-flat major, K. 595
24:20 Allegro
38:38 Larghetto
47:03 Allegro

With his short life cruelly and rapidly drawing to a clase, Mozart once again turned to the compositional style which most directly and profoundly reflected his own personality, the concerto for piano and orchestra, to say a few final things. The work, which, becasuse of Mozart's dwindling eminence, had to be performed in another musician's academy, might have turned out to be a solemn, lugubrious work, but Mozart, even in his final days, was not about to make his farewells with a superficial, obvious cliché.
In the final movement of an entirely positive and uplifting composition he regales his audiences with a lyrical children's song, invoking the joys of youth and springtime, perhaps a reflection back on those halcyon days when the monumental child prodigy first tasted the delights of being "Mozart on Tour".

In a fitting finale to our series, the grand lady of the keyboard, Alicia de Larrocha, joins Maestro André Previn and the European Chamber Orchestra in Vienna's Schönbrunn Palace for a performance of Mozart's final concerto.
