Mozart Piano Concertos Vol. 3

Mozart Piano Concertos Vol 3

Wolfgang Amadeus MOZART (1756-1791)

Hyperion CDA68049

Two of Mozart’s greatest piano concertos are featured on this album in which Angela Hewitt is partnered by Ottawa’s National Arts Centre Orchestra, conducted by Hannu Lintu.

Piano Concerto No 22 in E flat major K482

1. Allegro (13’43)
2. Andante (8’01)
3. Allegro (10’57)

Piano Concerto No 24 in C minor K491

4. Allegro (13’56)
5. Larghetto (7’18)
6. Allegretto (9’22)

“You can’t come away from any hearing of this work (C minor, K491) unscathed—it is that powerful, particularly when in the hands of someone like Hewitt, who has a sixth sense about the curves and straightaways of this formidably serious piece. The orchestra plays with panache and a sense of fine Mozartian style…(This) should be a very desirable collection when completed.”
