Elvira Madigan

Mozart's 21st Piano Concerto was composed just weeks after the very serious and dramatic Concerto No. 20 in D minor, and could be seen as a light-hearted and charming antidote to it. “Elvira Madigan” was the stage name of Hedvig Jensen, a stunningly beautiful Swedish circus performer. She was ill-fated to join her lover, Sixten Sparre, for a short romance before her murdered her and then killed himself because he was so heavily in debt. The poignant theme in the second movement of this concerto inspired Bo Widerberg to use it as the theme music for his film about Jensen’s life.
