Mendelssohn – Piano Concerto No. 1 – Yuja Wang

Piano Concerto No. 1 in G Minor, Op. 25, was written by Felix Mendelssohn in 1830–31, around the same time as his fourth symphony (“Italian”), and premiered in Munich in October 1831. This concerto was composed in Rome during a travel in Italy after the composer met a pianist in Munich. Mendelssohn attended one party after another in Munich in the October of 1831, the month of the premiere, but he also played chamber music and taught double counterpoint. He performed the piece himself at the premiere, which also included performances of his Symphony No. 1 and the Overture from Midsummer Night’s Dream. – Yuja Wang
