Notes and Editorial Reviews

A special 2-CD set comprising Mozart's late piano concertos in stylish and masterly interpretations from Alicia de Larrocha.

Released as a tribute to the great Spanish pianist Alicia de Larrocha who recorded for Decca for over twenty years from 1969, and who died on 25 September 2009.

Concertos 24 & 26 (recorded in March 1985) receive their first ever release and this has been made possible with the co-operation of both Alicia de Larrocha's family and the estate of Sir Georg Solti.
