This piano reduction of Mozart’s Piano Concerto in E-flat major K. 271 is based on Christoph Wolff’s Urtext edition, which was published in the New Mozart Edition (NMA V/15: Konzerte für ein oder mehrere Klaviere und Orchester mit Kadenzen, Volume 2, Kassel etc. 1976; BA 4571). In the present arrangement for two pianos, the solo part, including Mozart’s own cadenzas, is unchanged and thus identical with the version in the NMA. The piano arrangement adheres to the original orchestral score. Detailed information regarding the origin and history of the work and its sources as well as the editorial principles of the NMA are found in the Vorwort and Kritischer Bericht of NMA V/15/2.
