Mozart's Piano Concerti No. 12 and No. 13 were both written in the 1782-83 period, right after Mozart's arrival in Vienna, when, for the first time, he was introduced to the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, who's composition fell out of favor after his death in 1750. One only has to listen, to hear Bach's influence upon the then 26-year old Mozart! Pianist Francesca Khalifa will perform these two Mozart concertos in their original reduced setting with string quartet.
