In this unusual concerto for orchestra each movement is based on a famous Mozart piano sonata movement scored for full orchestra, with emphasis on one of the instrumental families. It explores the adapability of W.A. Mozart's great piano compositions to varied scoring using all the resources of the modern orchestra.
