Daniel Barenboim (piano/conductor), English Chamber Orchestra

[ Warner Classics / 10 CD ]

Release Date: Friday 12 August 2016

"Barenboim is assured and broadly enjoyable in both these concertos, but also perhaps a little idiosyncratic in such a way that we sometimes seem to be invited to listen to him for himself rather than simply to experience Mozart through him." (Gramophone Magazine on the original release)

Bringing together Mozart's complete solo piano concertos, performed by the peerless Daniel Barenboim, this collection provides a showcase of the composer's development of the genre, ranging from his early pasticcio works to those of powerful compositional prowess, as he began to carve his name in musical history. Barenboim conducts from the piano, leading the English Chamber Orchestra in performances of breathtaking passion and verve.

"Barenboim is assured and broadly enjoyable in both these concertos, but also perhaps a little idiosyncratic in such a way that we sometimes seem to be invited to listen to him for himself rather than simply to experience Mozart through him. Thus, his range of articulation, tone and dynamics is fine per se, but may well be thought a trifle too conscious and perhaps not always quite in style."
