Throughout history, many composers have devoted thought and attention to the challenging genre of “multi-hand” piano music. But it seems that only one great composer showed consistent interest in this genre throughout his entire creative life and contributed to it in almost every possible combination known in his day—and that is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Over a quarter of a century, Mozart produced a glorious chain of compositions, either for four hands on one piano or for two pianos, as well as concertos for two and three pianos. This is an unparalleled scope of composition that brought Mozart to a rare understanding of the “multi-hand” piano genre and to a perfect command of its different forms and variants.
