The Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major, K. 467, was completed on 9 March 1785 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, four weeks after the completion of the previous D minor concerto, K. 466
The famous Andante is in the subdominant key of F major
It was featured in the 1967 Swedish film Elvira Madigan. As a result, the piece has become widely known as the Elvira Madigan concerto.
Neil Diamond’s 1972 song “Song Sung Blue” was based on a theme from the andante movement of the concerto.
It is arranged for wind quintet.
Rather than transcribe Mozart’s string parts, (playing an almost continuous triplet figure throughout) I have tried to arrange it as if Mozart had written it originally for a wind ensemble.
The triplet figure is present, but is usually limited to one instrument….sometimes it is omitted…
The horn is restricted to the notes of the natural horn….this gives the arrangement an authentic sound.
