    Isn't Debussy's unofficial piano concerto, Fantasie for piano and orchestra, in G Major, as well?

    I must call to your attention that there is no "other" option. This isn't a democracy! Follow the rules!

    The very fabric of this thread is beginning to un-ravel. Get back on track.

    A bit strange, but in spite of hearing a lot of recordings,
    I´ve found that Mozart one even slightly (annoying) at times.

    Heh-heh.

    They're both fine works, but I prefer the Beethoven.

    They could try matching Beethoven's First with Mozart's K503 or the Second with Mozart's K595...but those would hardly make for much of a contest.

    We'll just have to move to piano sonatas, then.

    Guess I'm going against the tide here, but I prefer Mozart's no. 17 to any of the five Beethoven piano concertos.

    Agree...halfway. I'd prefer Ludwig's #1 to the K.503. But certainly not #2 to the K.595!
