JAN 19 1787 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart led the premiere of his Symphony No. 38 in D major, “Prague“ K. 504, at the National Theatre (now called the Estates Theatre) in Prague. On the same concert, which he called a “Grand Musical Academy,” Mozart also debuted his newest piano concerto, the magnificent C major, K 503.   As an encore he improvised at the piano one dozen variations on “Non più andrai” from The Marriage of Figaro after he had extemporized at the keyboard for over half an hour on other musical subjects.
