Stravinsky: Danses Concertantes

Mozart: Piano Concerto No.25 in C, K503
Mozart's 'Paris' symphony was composed almost in spite of the contemporary French musical styles, but its reception in the city nonetheless proved a huge success. This and his later Piano Concerto are staples of the young composer's cosmopolitan style, perfectly complemented by the Gallic flair of Debussy, and Stravinsky.
