Mozart had composed or arranged 12 piano concertos by the time he wrote his Concerto in E-flat Major (K.271) in 1777, just as he celebrated his 21st birthday. It was his breakthrough concerto, brilliantly achieved, surpassing practically everything he had composed to date. A century ago, two French scholars dubbed it the Jeunehomme Concerto, in honor of the pianist they thought he wrote it for but about whom they knew nothing. It turns out she didn’t exist; the beneficiary was really named Jenamy, not Jeunehomme — Louise Victoire Jenamy, daughter of the then-famous ballet-master Jean-Georges Noverre. Guest pianist Yi-heng Yang appears with Serenata of Santa Fe to play the Jenamy Concerto, with scaled-down instrumentation of just a string quartet, at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 11, at the Scottish Rite Center (463 Paseo de Peralta). Also on the program are Mozart’s C-Major Piano Concerto (K.415) and two modern pieces written in tribute to Mozart: Arvo Pärt’s Mozart-Adagio and Alfred Schnittke’s Mo-zart. Tickets ($25) can be had from Tickets Santa Fe at the Lensic (505-988-1234, www.ticketssantafe.org).
