Mozart Horn Concerto no. 1 in D major, K. 412, 514

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart started his Horn Concerto no. 1 in D major in 1791. Most unusually, it is a concerto in two movements, with each one receiving a particular catalogue number, according to the Köchel classification (K 412 and 514). It is the only horn concerto by Mozart to be in the key of D major and due to its short length it is usually performed accompanied by the other three horn concertos (which are all in E flat major). It was the last of his horn concertos to be finished, and in general lines it is less demanding for the player, which many see as a nod to the hornist that would premiere it: Joseph Leutgeb, a good friend a Mozart whose technical capabilities were reduced by his advanced age. Also presumably dedicated to Leutgeb were many Italian double-entendres present in the manuscript score, a display of Mozart's bizarre humor. It has been demonstrated that the final version of the concerto is actually a completion by Franz Xavier Süssmayr (Mozart's pupil who also wrote the most frequently performed completion of the Requiem). Süssmayr greatly deviated from Mozart's sketches, even inserting a plainchant melody which the composer had copied, presumably for using in the Requiem.
