Notes and Editorial Reviews
The sublime results were worth the wait: after forty years of collaboration, Maria Joao Pires and Maestro Claudio Abbado record two of Mozarts most beloved piano concertos for the very first time.
Maria Joao Pires weaves dark, dramatic strains into the miraculous luminosity of the D minor Concerto No.20, K 466 with a simplicity that makes her Mozart supreme.
She then bestows a glowing majesty upon Mozart's last piano concerto, the serene Concerto No.27 K 595 in B flat major, as only an artist of her gifts and profound experience can.
Orchestra Mozart and Maestro Abbado support Pires with translucent sound and immaculate style: an exceptional encounter between two musical giants of our time.
