Mozart Concerto in C Major No. 21 Cadenza
« on: December 08, 2004, 09:34:01 AM »
Hey guyss!

Change of plans, I'm performing the Mozart Concert in C Major No.21 Mvt 1.  I was wondering if anyone has the music for any cadenza's written for this movement?

Thanks so much!

Hello,
When I was doing my undergrad. I performed this concerto with orchestra.  There is a cadenza by Lili Krause, however I decided to write my own cadenza (Krause inspired version).  You must try it - scales, broken and alternate chords and alberti bass to get you started.  It was actually a lot of fun, not to mention that my professors were very impressed by my attempt.

good luck

Ohhh okay, hey would I be able to get a copy of your written cadenza, so I can see what you've done?  I doubt I'll write my own cadenza tho!! but theres always a chance i might, if i have spare time.

Sorry, but I have lost my manuscript for the cadenza.  I performed this about 10 years ago, I did not have access to a notator program.
Basically, I started with the alberti bass theme, played some scales, then chromatic scales to modulate, some alternate broken chords, arpeggios and that was about it.  The cadenza doesn't have to be long.  It's all up to you - a couple of measures should be fine.  I know you probably get a little intimidated from all the cd recordings, and you feel that a cadenza has to be virtuosic and complement the entire concerto.
Give it a try.  300 years ago, all the performers were making up their own cadenzas.  Actually they would improvise this.

Does anyone have a cadenza for this?  It one of the competition concerti this year at IU and a friend of mine is looking for one, but they are all checked out of the music library.  Let me know if you can help!

Thanks,
Michael

The old Giles recording of the K467 had a really cool 1st mov't cadenza.  Does anyone recall who wrote that?

The most often played for this concerto, is the Robert Casadesus, which I believe you can buy from Schirmer.  He wrote cadenza for first and third movements.  They are very Classical in style, though the piano technique leans towards the Beethoven end of things.  They fit wonderfully with the concerto.
