Notes and Editorial Reviews

Admirable as the unfolding series of Mozart concertos from Robert Levin and Christopher Hogwood has been, this new instalment is especially felicitous. Levin and Hogwood never forget that the original aim of these works was to seize and hold the attention of an audience. Toward that end they employ tightly sprung rhythms, sparkling articulation, marked dynamic and textural contrasts, and infectious vitality (produced by the spirit of improvisation that overflows into Levin’s cadenzas) that simply has to be heard to be appreciated. The two brilliant D major works (K175 and K451) respond particularly well to this treatment, and K449 worthily complements the magical account by Hephzibah Menuhin.
