During the baroque period, before the invention of the piano, keyboard concertos were comparatively rare, with the exception of the organ and some harpsichord concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach.

It was the last of Mozart’s four C Major concertos and both the key and the drama of No. 25 had a clear influence on Beethoven, who wrote a concerto in C of his own (No. 1) in 1795 that echoed elements of Mozart’s 1786 masterwork.

Western classical music really came into its own in the baroque and classical periods, graced by masters such as Vivaldi, Bach, Mozart and Beethoven. The sonata we’ll hear today was written about halfway through the group. He was the first composer to make his living purely as a commercial enterprise, performing in concerts to which the public bought tickets and selling his compositions to composers.

He was a genius in all genres, producing masterpiece symphonies, especially his 3rd, nicknamed “the Rhenish,” for its triumphantly Bavarian quality, his chamber music, especially his Piano Quintet, a monument in the history of music, and his Piano Concerto in a minor, perhaps the finest ever written. The etymology is uncertain, but the word seems to have originated from the conjunction of the two Latin words conserere (meaning to tie, to join, to weave) and certamen (competition, fight): the idea is that the two... amazing composer, Ludwig van Beethoven, was born.

On the other hand, due to the Mughal conquest of North Indian Hindu empires, the highly malleable and miscible music of North India developed into an indiscernible mixture of Indian and Persian musical traditions, and retained the ancient Indian trait of being solely centered around the solitary artist. The cycle was fairly successful; in particular, the song at the heart of the cycle—the fourth of seven—has become one of his best-known, usually translated in English as “Songs My Mother Taught Me.” Throughout, the songs are both lyrical and spirited, combining the flavor of gypsy music with the sophistication of Western art song.

Number three (65-73, a minor) is very different from the previous ones: by its minor key and its rhythm. The Third Concerto was composed in 1853-1854, given its first performance by Rubinstein himself with the London Philharmonic in 1857, then finally published a year later.
