Info for Mozart: Orchestral Works



Jean-Efflam Bavouzet’s first three volumes of Mozart concertos with the Manchester Camerata and Gábor Takács-Nagy have been received with widespread acclaim, and so it’s with some excitement that we release the keenly anticipated fourth instalment in the series. Composed within just one month in early 1785, these two concertos are among the most popular of all of Mozart’s piano concertos. No. 20, K 466, was his first concerto in a minor key, and it’s dark and stormy nature contrasts the light and sunny feeling of concerto no.21. As with so many of his piano concertos, both works were composed for the Vienna concert series, and given their premiere performances with Mozart at the keyboard. The two concertos are interspersed on this recording with a vivid performance of the Don Giovanni Overture, which further demonstrates the exemplary playing of the Manchester Camerata.

"This is altogether a really fine performance…Bavouzet uses the ubiquitous Beethoven cadenzas for K466, while for its C major companion-piece K467 he opts for the examples by Friedrich Gulda, whose recording of the work has been a seminal influence on him…Emulating Gulda, Bavouzet makes the melody float freely while maintaining the throbbing rhythm in the left hand…Takács-Nagy and the Manchester Camerata are thoroughly in tune with Bavouzet, and the recording is first-rate." (BBC Music Magazine)

"Bavouzet and the Manchester Camerata are ideally poised in the fast music, with the conversational interplay between piano and woodwinds displaying the naturalness that is an evident hallmark of this cycle. This series of discs is shaping up to be a serious front-runner in a cycle of works that has never wanted for fine recordings." (Gramophone Magazine)

"Bavouzet once again gives performances of a sheen and brilliance know to only the finest Mozart pianists. Impeccable in technique and musicianship (an indivisible union) his delectably light-fingered dexterity never descends." (International Piano)
