In 1776, Mozart composed three piano concertos, one of which was the Concerto in F for Three Pianos and Orchestra, No.7, K.242. He originally finished K.242 in February 1776 for three pianos; however, when he eventually recomposed it for himself and another pianist in 1780 he rearranged it for two pianos, and that is how the piece is often performed today.

Shostakovich’s first symphony was a tremendous success from its premiere, and is still considered today as one of his finest works. It displays a characteristic combination of liveliness and wit on the one hand, and drama and tragedy on the other.
