The Piano Concerto No. 8 in C major, K. 246, or Lützow Concert was written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in April of 1776 in the same year as the Haffner Serenade (KV 250). Countess Antonia Lützow, 25 or 26 years old, second wife of Johann Nepomuk Gottfried Graf Lützow, the Commander of the Hohensalzburg Fortress, was a fine pianist. The solo work is not highly demanding, but it does require agility. Mozart played the Piano Concerto in Mannheim and Munich on October 4, 1777 and used it for teaching. Three different cadenzas have survived varying difficulty, accommodating the abilities of performers from student level to professional : one for two pianos.

The concerto, very convenient for beginning performers,  is in three movements:
