Written in a fever of productivity at the height of the composer’s career, Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 exudes the richness and majesty of Mozart at his best. Melodies from the dreamy second movement have been borrowed by the film Elvira Madigan, songwriter Neil Diamond, and more.

Conductor Fabien Gabel also leads Korngold’s Sinfonietta, which hints at the Hollywood movie scores the composer is well-known for, as well as J. Strauss’s Kaiser-Walzer (Emperor Waltz), a hallmark of the genre the Strauss family helped spread across Europe.
