Enjoy. Cool

Note: Nos. 1-4 and K. 107 were excluded for rather obvious reasons.

Doesn't anybody here have an opinion? Mozart's piano concertos represent the greatest collection of piano concertos by any composer in terms of average quality and quantity (Brahms is pretty good but wrote only two). In spite of that, this poll has only had 3 voters, of which I'm one and another one voted for one concerto only. What a disgrace.

Speaking for myself, I do have an opinion but can no longer be arsed with polls.

Not yet, but if it sounds like Hummel, then Mozart wins. Cool

Mozart usually does "win", but sampling the unsungs can yield rewards as you no doubt already know.

I love the Mozart 20/23/25, but I imagine it will be some time before I listen to them again.

If you too love the Mozart PC's you could do worse than check the recording of 3 of the Woelfl PC's, noatably that 1st. That is a close to Mozart as one can get in my most humble of opinions.

Jolly good show.

Possibly the only other one I would rate as highly as some Mozart is the Stamitz F Major recorded yonks ago.

I haven't listened all of them, but so far 23rd one is my favourite, especially the second movement.

Why was 1-4 excluded? I'm new to concerto works and I am going to choose a Mozart concerto for a competition with my local Symphony Orchestra. Any ideas? In the past year and a half (August 2011-May 2013) I went from a child's etude to Chopin's Waltz in C Sharp minor Opus 64, No. 2. This inspires me to challenge myself some more. My teacher and I have decided that the Pathetique would be okay for me. Were in search of a suitable concerto like I said before. Also I'm 13. Don't pick anything that will send me into a pit of mental confusion Tongue

I voted no 9, 23 and 24.

Mozart experimented with the form on his 9th, which baffled me to think that there was a time where concerto form was still being formed

The second movement of the 23rd concerto is his only work in f# minor, and created one of the most operatic movement.

His 24th concerto is one of my all time favorite concertos. Sturm und Drang is peaked here.

27th Concerto is definitely one of my favorite pieces of all time 8 Cheesy.
The 3rd mvt is really dramatic and has a ton of beautiful parts and some minor parts.
