Mozart Piano Concerto No. 9 – Bauhaus Kandinsky-style Art Work Print

Posted in Dark Designs, Dark Illustrations with tags , on November 23, 2014 by darkvotum

For musical fans, if you like Mozart like I do you’ll appreciate this print of musical masterpiece of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 9 K.271. Mozart’s work is about speed, structure and musical perfection.  He composed this piece at the age of 21.

The design print is based on Kandinsky’s musical translation of geometric objects during his Bauhaus tenure, and it is explained as follows:

The work is scored for solo piano, 2 oboes, 2 horns, and strings.

It consists of 3 movements:

1. Allegro, in E-flat major and common (C) time 10:30
2. Andantino, in C minor and 3/4 time 12:00
3. Rondo (Presto), in E-flat major and cut time 10:00

The first movement opens, unusually for the time, with interventions by the soloist, anticipating Beethoven’s Fourth and Fifth Concertos. As Girdlestone (1964) notes, its departures from convention do not end with this early solo entrance, but continue in the style of dialogue between piano and orchestra in the rest of the movement. Mozart wrote two cadenzas for this movement.

The second movement is written in the relative minor key. In only five of Mozart’s piano concertos is the second movement in a minor key (K. 41, K. 271, K. 456, K. 482, and K. 488. K. 41 is an arrangement). Mozart wrote two cadenzas for this movement.

The third movement which opens with the solo piano is in a rondo form on a large scale. It is interrupted, surprisingly, by a slow minuet section (a procedure Mozart would repeat with his 22nd concerto, 1785, also in the key of E-flat). The work ends in the original tempo.

I hope you listen this musical work while looking at the design to appreciate this incredible masterpiece.  Of course, you can purchase the recommended frame print medium size in my RedBubble portfolio. I think the design is very unique like no other and it will enhance your room or office.  Thanks for your consideration.

Kokopelli’s figure is a very popular one. The design is a modern variation of the Hopi/Navajo/Zuni drawing but adapted to a comic style. It represents a fertility god, prankster, healer and story teller.
