"Alan Tyson has demonstrated that Mozart's Horn Concerto No. 1 in D major, K. 412/514 (K. 386b), long thought to have been composed in 1782, dates from 1791 ó the year of the composer's death. The second movement is left incomplete in the autograph; in fact, the concerto was completed by Mozart's student Franz Xaver S¸ssmayer (1766-1803), who also finished Mozart's Requiem. S¸ssmayer took great liberties with the piece, inserting into the rondo finale a segment based on the Gregorian chant for the Lamentations of Jeremiah. This particular melody forms part of the music used during Holy Week in the Catholic Church, in light of which the inscription on the completed manuscript, "April 6, 1792," makes sense ó that date was the Catholic feast of Good Friday in 1792." - AMG.
