This guide to Mozart's two most popular piano concertos—the D minor, K. 466, and the C major, K. 467 (the so-called "Elvira Madigan")—presents the historical background of the works, placing them within the context of Mozart's compositional and performance activities at a time when his reputation as both composer and pianist was at its peak.
