W. A. Mozart (1756 Salzburg - 1791
Vienna) wrote his Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major in Vienna in 1785.
This one, along with seven others that were all composed during the
years 1784 and 1786, belongs to the zenith of his instrumental
compositions since they seem to combine the forms of symphony and
concerto.  This enabled Mozart to present himself as a pianist while
doing justice to the demands of a symphonic orchestral work.

was born in, in the Getreidegasse in Salzburg. (E. Stadler)
