Mozart's Piano Concerto 27 is a musical conversation of sorts. 
The piano talks to the strings and winds, and they talk back, sounding at times like they are trying to get in the last word.
Then the winds and brass chime in and the strings quiet to a whisper until the piano asserts itself into the conversation.
