In short, an absolutely delicious album, interpreted in a masterly way and recorded superbly. I really hope that these artists offer us more Mozart. Do not miss it.
Described as a "stellar Mozartian" Franceso Piemontesi has performed Mozart extensively recently, including a critically acclaimed 2015 BBC Prom, a Mozart cycle at London’s Wigmore Hall which commenced in January 2016 and continues in 2017 and Mozart concertos with the SCO which The Herald awarded five stars.
The Swiss pianist enjoys particular insight into Mozart gaining a useful ‘love of detail’ from his teacher Alfred Brendel, who was himself renowned for his masterly interpretations of Mozart. This recording couples consecutive yet contrasting works from Mozart’s Vienna period: K. 503 represents the longest and most substantial of his concert masterpieces and K. 537 provides the soloist with an audience-pleasing cadenza.
Conductor Andrew Manze, well known as a HIP pioneer, shares Piemontesi’s approach to creating an authentic performance, making this a Mozart dream team.
Francesco Piemontesi and Andrew Manze also recorded Mozart Piano Concertos No 19 & 27 with the SCO.
