    Favorite Classical Period Concerto

    What is your favorite classical period concerto, for any instrument. There are so many fine ones to choose from and I would like to listen to any good ones.

    Although I haven't heard many of the numerous concertos. I'm a huge fan of mozart piano concertos. I love 21, 20, and 14.

    Hi LBandG,

    Well, you absolutely can`t go wrong with Mozart. Pretty much any concerto of his is great. My fave is the Piano Concerto No.20 in d minor, especially the first movement. Also like many of the wind concertos- Clarinet Conc. in A Major, Horn Conc. No. 3 in Eb Major, Flute Conc. No. 1 in G Major, and the Oboe Concerto in C Major.

    This is pretty tough to beat; Heinz Holliger playing the first movement of the Oboe Concerto-
