W. A. Mozart: Piano Concerto No.12 In A Major K.414 - Arranged Piano & String Quartet

Books | String Quartet, Piano Chamber

Publisher: Bärenreiter
Format: Sheet Music | Score and Parts

"Mr. Mozart, Kapellmeister, wishes to announce to the most worthy public the appearance in print of three of his recently contrived Piano concertos. These three concertos may be performed not only with a large Orchestra including wind instruments, but also a quattro, that is, with two Violins, one Viola and Violoncello. They will be issued early in April of this year (1783)."

As this advertisement shows, it was Mozart's intention to keep the accompaniment part flexible in his Piano concertos K.413-5 and, as we know from a letter Mozart wrote to his father, in K.449 as well. In addition to orchestral forces it is also possible to use a chamber setting with string instruments, one to a part. This chamber music edition accommodates this option, thereby enriching Mozart's charming chamber music with Piano.

These editions of Mozart's Piano Concertos are based on the Urtext editions published in the New Mozart Edition. In the present arrangement for two Pianos, the solo part - as well as the strings - are unchanged and thus identical with the version in the NMA. The Piano arrangement adheres to the original orchestral score.
