When not praising Ms Larkin’s performance, many people have asked me why I chose this particular piano music.

My inspiration in selecting the material came from the book, Jane Austen and Mozart: Classical Equilibrium in Fiction and Music by Robert K. Wallace. The chapter called Pride and Prejudice and Piano Concerto no. 9 was the nod to start the audio off with an excerpt from that concerto. It matched the material and first opening lines perfectly. Great minds think alike and Mozart and Austen were very much in sync structurally. The music, played by Sarah Edelstein and recorded at BMA, is extremely moving and adds a rich component to Alison’s wonderful narration.

In many ways Jane Austen is operatic and this audio comes the closest of all them to presenting that. Excerpts extracted from other Mozart piano concertos used in chapter segues give the listener a chance to hear Mozart gems they’ve possibly never heard before. That is part of the many offerings of this audio.

From Jane Austen and Mozart:

“The action of volume 1 of Pride and Prejudice is intense and playful, complex and quick-paced. Volume 2 is slower in pace and deeper in emotion. Volume 3 returns to the quick-paced action of volume 1 but is more relaxed in structure.

The first movement of K. 271 (Piano Concerto No. 9) is an intensely playful and quick-paced Allegro. The second movement is slower in tempo and deeper in emotion. The third movement returns to the high spirits and quick temp of the opening movement but is more relaxed in structure, including a ’surprise minuet.’

“K. 271 has even more affinities with Pride and Prejudice than most Mozart concertos do. Those affinities are emotional and spiritual as well as structural. Broadly speaking, the mood of each work is happy-sad-happy in the successive volumes or movement.”

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is timeless. Though set in the early century, the actuations of the characters ring true of our modern society. Add Mozart’s Piano Concert No. 9 and you have a great combination that brings the readers of the Austen classic to early life in England. It is no wonder schools continue to use the classic as an important material in its literature discourse.
