Notes and Editorial Reviews

"In recent years the 32-year-old Israeli pianist David Greilsammer has emerged as an exceptionally sensitive and adventurous artist. This new recording presents him as pianist and conductor in arresting performances of Mozart’s Piano Concertos No. 22 in E flat and No. 24 in C minor, with the Suedama Ensemble (Amadeus spelled backward), a lively chamber orchestra that Mr. Greilsammer founded in New York in 2005. Mr. Greilsammer’s playing is a model of refinement. Yet just below the elegant surface lurks a bold and inquisitive musician alert to every ingenious nuance and quirk of these elusive scores. He plays his own inventive cadenzas." -- Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times
