Product description

Product Description

Mozart’s instrument was the piano, and it was through this medium, that he gave expression to his musical ideas. The piano concertos are perhaps Mozart’s most personal series of works. Practically all of them were written for his own use.
The piano concerts composed during the last decade of Mozart’s life have quite rightly been described as the ‘crowning achievement’ and the ‘absolute summit of his instrumental creative work’ (Einstein). They are unparalleled testimony to a rapid development of the piano concerto genre as well as mirrors to the composer’s troubled innermost feelings.
The Concerto No. 11 belongs to a group of three concertos that Mozart composed in Vienna, in 1782/1783; The Concerto No. 14 was first of six piano concertos composed in quick succession in 1784. For flexibility of performance options, it employs the same small instrumental forces (strings, two oboes and two horns) as K 413 and so can be performed with the strings alone or with the additional wind and brass instruments; Because of the heightened virtuosity of the piano part, the Concerto No. 15 was described by Mozart as ’a concerto of a quite special kind’.
“The subtlety and detail of [Barenboim’s] phrasing and articulation throughout these admirable performances are idiomatic to their figurative fingertips.” (BBC Music Magazine)
“Barenboim’s performances are stylish and vividly characterized. He highlights the dramatic contrast between the passages of virtuosic brio and those of operatic allusion. Most convincing are the livelier sections where his pert articulation is thrilling.” (Gramophone)
