Piano Concerto No. 5 in D major, K. 175, was composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1773, at the age of 17. Its Mozart's first fully original piano concerto. His previous efforts were based on works by other composers.

Contents

Instrumentation

The work is scored for two oboes, two horns, two trumpets, timpani, and strings and was the only concerto with trumpets and timpani until No. 13, K. 415.

Note that only the first and last movements contain parts for trumpets and timpani.

Movements

The three movements of the concerto are listed as follows:

  1. Allegro
  2. Andante ma un poco adagio
  3. Rondo: Allegro

Unfolding with two whole notes, the powerful final movement of this concerto may be grand, but it is still faulty. Mozart tackles a problem in this allegro, how to introduce contrapuntal elements in a sonata form movement, that he was to revisit several more times. Mozart later composed a more tuneful rondo finale for this concerto, thinking it would be more popular with the Viennese audience than the original third movement.

This concerto was a favorite of Mozart's and is mentioned in many of his letters.[1] He played the piece at concerts until the year of his death.
