Notes and Editorial Reviews

This box includes 14 of Mozart’s most significant piano concertos. Mozart, who composed 21 piano concerti, can be regarded as the “inventor” of the popular piano concerto. Although J.S. Bach and his son had written numerous concerti for harpsichord or fortepiano and orchestra before him, Mozart’s enormous input to the genre is mostly due to his concerti being regarded as ‘popular music’ by his contemporaries: to be enjoyed and quickly replaced by newer works. For this series on four DVDs, the most influential, the most artistically challenging and the most popular piano concerti have been selected to be performed by the best Mozart interpreters of our time. All the performances are filmed 1989-1990 on the original places of Mozart’s Read more journeys and follow his musical development with reference to his piano concertos.
