There is no cadenza in K. 622. There never was one, and had you
inserted one, he would have been correct in seriously criticizing you.

I think you must ask yourself why you believe that there is a place in
the concerto for one, what the purpose of such a cadenza might be, and
where it would go. I'm not trying to be difficult, but simply avoiding
the easy answer by saying, "Here is what happens and why." It is
something that you have to give consideration to.

What is a cadenza? How does the composer request one? What are you
supposed to do if so requested? Where is the request for one in K. 622?

I wasn't able to ask him why he said that, all i know is that my edition didn't have a cadenza in the first movement. I don't think he said that because he hated my playing (thanks to him I got 2nd), but I don't understand.
