Early and late works
What connects Mozart's Piano Concerto K 453 with Schubert? For the Romantic writer E. T. A. Hoffmann, the case was clear: harmonic turns in the third movement clearly speak a »Romantic« tonal language and point to Schubert. In addition, the architecture of the piano concerto was also unusually symphonically oriented, as it was later continued in the Romantic period. Mozart had written the concerto for his technically accomplished pupil Barbara Ployer, which is reflected in the demanding piano part. Kirill Gerstein, Andrew Manze and the Camerata Salzburg enter into a dialogue with the classical and early romantic periods, reflecting on their core repertoire: a late work by Mozart meets a youth symphony by Schubert - with chamber music instrumentation - which he wrote as a 19-year-old and which is one of today's most popular symphonies.
