Recorded in February 1997 in the Mozarteum Salzburg. Mozart wrote almost all his piano concertos for his own use, for he was one of the most brilliant virtuosos of his time. The Concerto K. 537 was premiered in April 1789 in Dresden when Mozart was travelling to Berlin. One year later, Mozart played his new piece in Frankfurt am Main when Leopold II was crowned King of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation.
