Notes and Editorial Reviews



This pairing of concertos Nos 25 and 27, recorded with Chamber Orchestra of Europe, is Piotr Anderszewski’s third Warner Classics album of Mozart concertos. “In Mozart I tend to prefer to direct from the keyboard,” he explains, “His concertos are like chamber works ... The piano is in dialogue with the orchestra, conversing and interacting all the time. The two works are very different …No 25 is very grand, complex and sophisticated; No 27, Mozart’s final piano concerto, is in a major key, but underneath it I sense an incredible sadness … It always amazes me how deep this music is.”

REVIEWS:

There are so many moments here
Read more that bring a smile to a jaded Mozartian’s face: little holdings back, touches of ornamentation, that magical moment in K595’s slow movement where the piano’s song is shadowed only by flute and violins, exquisitely done here. Anderszewski’s piano is right there in the middle of it, supporting, chattering away in passagework, never once hogging the spotlight.

– Gramophone

His pristine fingerwork is always at the service of the score in continuous dialogue with the orchestral musicians, but he brings personal touches to these frequently recorded pieces.
