Product Description

Product Description

Ronald Brautigam, with the congenial support of Die Kölner Akademie, under Michael Alexander Willens, here performs Mozarts Piano Concertos Nos. 24 and 25, both composed in 1786. The C major concerto is in fact one of the most expansive of all classical piano concertos, rivalling Beethovens fifth concerto. Their grandeur immediately made them popular fare in the concert hall Mendelssohn, for instance, had No.24 in his repertoire through the 1820s and 1830s. On his copy of a fortepiano from 1795, and with orchestral forces corresponding to what Mozart would have been familiar, Brautigam creates a sound of which Mozart would have been familiar. On the first release in the teams traversal of Mozarts concertos (BIS-SACD-1794), Brautigam was described by International Record Review as an absolutely instinctive Mozartian, with melodic playing of consummate beauty, going on to congratulate him on finding the ideal partners for the project.

Review

Brautigam is his usual reliable self,providing playing of both brilliance and insight. Performance **** Recording **** --BBC Music Magazine,Christmas'11

Brautigam plays them gracefully and engagingly. --IRR,Dec'11

...this is exhilarating,often thought provoking Mozart-playing. --Gramophone,Jan'12

The perky woodwind and tight ensemble contribute further to this brilliantly performed and recorded disc. **** --Classic FM Magazine,Feb'12

HASH(0x8e9177f8) out of 5 stars Hearing Mozart standards in a new way! 30 Jan. 2014

I've never really been a huge fan of the fortepiano. It always came off as sounding "tinny" when compared to the modern piano. But as a new fan of Ronald Brautigam's playing of Beethoven and seeing the awesome price for this album I gave it a shot. I am truly amazed at how much I am enjoying these pieces.

The orchestra is a new one to me. No worries there though because they sound really fabulous. All the nuances of the music are there. Knowing these pieces as well as I do, I'm still amazed at how the smaller orchestra and period instruments bring out the smaller, chamber orchestra sound that plays off so well with the fortepiano.

Mr. Brautigam's playing is superb. Melodious phrasing and expression is all you could want from these concertos. So often players today, with all of their technical ability, just blast through these pieces like they were student etudes. You won't hear that on this album! You'll hear great musicianship, lyrical interpretation and a sensitive yet exciting rendering of these classics. Mozart lives! Purchase and enjoy hearing something really new from these two great concertos!
