ABC Classics is proud to present a new series of Mozart Piano Concerto recordings by internationally renowned pianists. Each disc focuses on a single concerto, attractively presented with detailed liner notes and extensive information about the performers. Launching the series are award-winning artists Imogen Cooper, Howard Shelley and Simon Tedeschi, each bringing their unique insights to Mozart’s sublime works.
Concerto No. 23 is a work of delicate poetry, full of subtle colours that conceal intense emotions, from the calm simplicity of the opening Allegro and the sombre, ‘almost unbearably perfect’ slow movement to the high spirits of the bright, bracing finale.
