Mozart and the Organ 40:09Download
Mozart did not write as extensively for the organ as some of his predecessors, like Bach for example, and it is often believed that much of this repertoire was complex when in the employ of the Archbishop of Salzburg. Mozart had a great many friends and admirers in Salzburg, and with that the opportunity to work in many genres. During this time he completed what critics consider to be a breakthrough work, the 1776 piano concerto in E-flat. It was later in his life that he went on to composer the complex Fantasia works for the instrument that bear witness to Mozart's genius in the extraordinary handling of countrapuntal phrases.
