Concerto 26 D major KV 537 (“Krnungskonzert” Coronation Concerto) Completed 24 February 1788 according to Mozart’s “Verzeichnss”. Mozart is 32 years old. The work was probably truly completed just in time for the first performance on 14 April 1789 in Dresden (if it were actually completed at that time). 1789, 16 April, Dresden, “the other day I played the new concerto in D at Court.” 1790, 8 October, Frankfurt am Main: “…and then, it’s just empty talk about the Imperial Cities.–I am certainly famous, admired, and popular here; for the rest people here are even meaner with money than they are in Vienna.–If the concert here is reasonably successful, then is it thanks to my name, or that of the Countess Hatzfeldt and the House of Schweitzer, who have enthusiastically taken my part?–for the rest I will be very happy when it’s all over.”….Download booklet
