Mozart Concerto in G or in D?
I've listened to both (because I have to learn one for an audition), and to me it sounds like D is a bit more challenging. What's your opinion? Also, which one do you personally like better?

It depends. G is usually considered to be more technical, but D is considered to have more challenges in regard to phrasing. Or at least... that is my opinion from when I learned both of them. Either way, both are very well known, and have to be played spotlessly.

Both are pretty much equally difficult. I mean......it's Mozart!

I personally think G is the easier one. My favorite one in those lines in hearing is the Concerto in D. I also like the 3rd movement in Concerto in C.
