Notes and Editorial Reviews

Arthur Schoonderwoerd, one of today's most sought-after interpreters on the fortepiano, presents the sixth part of his complete recording of Mozart's piano concertos on the ACCENT label with this release of three early Piano Concertos, no. 9, 11 and 12. As they have already done on their previous issues, the aim of Schoonderwoerd and his ensemble Cristofori here is to liberate Mozart's works from traditional nineteenth-century sound concepts. Each string part in the orchestra is played by just one performer; the result is a very slender, transparent sound that supports the solo instrument without ever covering it up.
