Product description

Product Description

The phenomenal Angela Hewitt embarks upon another Hyperion journey, this time through the piano concertos of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The twenty-seven concertos for piano and orchestra contain some of the composers greatest achievements. Concertos Nos 6 and 8, two of the young Mozarts earliest attempts at the genre, display a perfection of form and an elegant purity. Concerto No 9, the Jeunehomme, remarkably written in 1777 when Mozart was 21, is considered to be the composers first great masterpiece. The result of this creative outburst was a monument of musical originality and inventive orchestration. As the American critic Michael Steinberg aptly put it, in this concerto Mozart, so to speak, became Mozart. In these interpretations Angela Hewitt displays her characteristic elegance and innate musicality. She is supported by the impeccably refined playing of the Orchestra da Camera di Mantova and the disc includes a personal and illuminating note by the pianist.

Review

CD of the Week --Classic fm radio,w/c 26/09/11

Anyone lucky enough to have been at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in April to hear Angela Hewitt direct Mozart's Piano Concerto No 9 K271 from the keyboard will be pleased with her new ambition to record all 27 concertos for Hyperion. Judging from this first example, it's going to be a journey as revelatory as her exploration of all the major keyboard works of Bach. Hewitt is also a violinist and so brings elegant yet practical intuition to her direction; much of her keyboard articulation, for instance, imitates string-bowing. She is joined in this exciting new endeavour by the fleet-footed Orchestra Da Camera di Mantova, who share her attention to stylistic detail. It's going to be a thrilling ride. --The Observer,25/09/11

..in Hewitt's hands this is no artless dance;instead,something profound,as you'd expect from her-and get. --Gramophone,Nov'11

Recommended in Classic fm's Christmas CD Guide. --Classic fm Magazine,Dec'11

'Hewitt is a spry Mozartian, and she infuses the players of the Orchestra da Camera di Mantova with lively spirit to match. Her playing is effortlessly nimble … her phrasing is actually finely balanced in ways that preserve the music from the threat of sounding like patter. And the sense of give-and-take between soloist and orchestra is first- rate' --The Irish Times
