Mozart wrote his Piano Concerto in D minor, K466, for his subscription concerts held during the Lenten season of 1785. According to the entry in his own autograph catalogue of works, it was completed on 10 February 1785 and given its premiere one day later. Leopold Mozart, then visiting in Vienna, mentioned the piece in a letter of 14 February to his daughter:

An excellent new piano concerto by Wolfgang was being written out by the copyist when we arrived, and your brother had not even had time to play through the Rondo as he had to supervise the work of copying.

Urtext edition of the concerto (with orchestral accompaniment arranged for second piano - 2 copies required for performance) has been edited by world-renowned musicologist Christoph Wolff together with pianist Christian Zacharias. Contains the cadenzas (WoO58) by Beethoven, who gave the first public performance of the concerto in Vienna, in appendix.
