Mozart: Piano Concertos 20 21 23 & 27
Artist: Elizabeth Sombart
Format: CD

More Info:

The four great Mozart concertos on this new album from Elizabeth Sombart span from 1785 to 1791, his final year. The range of emotions these works convey is extraordinary. No.20 in D minor left the audience at the premiere reeling. It is terse, angry and full of passion. The C major concerto No.21 in contrast, is sunny, bright and full of optimism. No.23 in A major is bathed in a feeling of warm contentment. The wistful and heartfelt Adagio is especially striking. No.27 in B flat of 1791 is an autumnal work of intense sadness, almost as if the composer sensed his life was coming to an end.
