This week we will explore Mozart’s piano concerti and all of the relationships that influenced him, especially his one with Johann Christian Bach. While exploring various sounds, the teenage Mozart was so heavily inspired by J.C. Bach’s writing that he made it his own. Bach and Mozart bonded over music, as well as over tricky keyboard games.
