Charles Rosen ("The Classical Style: Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven") writes:

..But even at a time when Mozart's reputation was low--when his grace obscured his power--the estimation of this work remained high. It is not a work, of course, that is much discussed (it excites no controversy) or much imitated; nor is it the favorite Mozart concerto of many musicians just as no one's favorite Leonardo is the 'Mona Lisa". Like the G minor symphony and 'Don Giovanni', the D minor concerto can be said to transcend it's own excellences.

The historic importance of the K. 466 is that it belongs to the series of works that made Mozart the supreme composer in most musician's minds within ten years of his death. It represents the Mozart who was considered the 'greatest' of the Romantic composers, and it was the character of this work and a few others like it that pushed Haydn in the background for more than a century. It was the concerto that Beethoven played and wrote cadenzas for. It is the fullest realization of that aspect of Mozart that the nineteenth century quite rightly named 'daemonic', and which, for so long, made a balanced assessment of the rest of his work so difficult.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
