Concerto Listening Journal: Mozart Piano Concerto No.21

-Alberti-like bass, but not quite so
-Mostly Chromatic
-Piano is clearly the center of the piece and performance
-Seems like Piano and Strings are taking turns
-Duple simple meter
-Moderato tempo
-String Orchestra and a piano
-Polyphonic, except when in subject

-Subject is immediately established, nothing else is happening
-Sibject visited a few times throughout the piece
-Towards the end of the piece, the entire orchestra stops for the piano (for a couple seconds)
-Piano never plays chords, only single notes
-Piano plays in syncopation to the string orchestra (except in subject)
-Piano is moving along scales often

-Composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
-Probably Composed in Late 1700s or early 1800s
