If you want to get to the bottom of the cheerfulness and gallantry in Mozart’s oeuvre, you can do no better than taking as a contrast one of his compositions that has always been described as gloomy and demonic.
Putting aside the often-cited vocal heavyweights such as “Don Giovanni” and Requiem, Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20, K. 466 occupies a distinguished position as a resonant counterpart to the charming music he wrote for social occasions in that it takes on a new dimension in his instrumental music. The choice of a minor key, unusual for a concerto, lends a dramatic tone to the composition, whereby the soloist and orchestra engage with one another in sharp contrast.
