Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pianist Anne-Marie McDermott's Mozart Piano Concerto cycle continues with Mozart's brilliant first original Piano Concerto, the D major Concerto, K. 175, composed at age 17. Volume 2 also presents two of Mozart's unquestionable masterpieces, the powerful concerto in D major, 451, and the ever-popular Concerto in B-flat major, K. 450. McDermott's Mozart Vol. 1 has been met with glowing praise, Donald Vroon in The American Record Guide writing of K. 238: "Her playing is better than anyone else that I've heard. It's so alive! It's as if I never heard this Concerto before."

REVIEW:

Pianist Anne-Marie McDermott is competitive in her performances here with the best of the considerable
Read more recorded competition in this repertoire. If she maintains this high a level of playing throughout the series, she might well be a first choice in this repertory. This is simply excellent Mozart artistry and thus highly recommended.
