Notes & Reviews:

MDG's complete recording of Mozart's piano compositions with Christian Zacharias in the double role as pianist and conductor of the Lausanne Chamber Orchestra continues with KV 488, certainly the most-performed piano concerto by the great Salzburg composer, complemented here by KV 246 and KV 175, Mozart's very first piano concerto. Mozart himself regarded his first piano concerto of December 1773 as a gem. Five years later he continued to enjoy great success with it in Mannheim "because here it pleases quite well," as he proudly reported to his father. And even at his Vienna academies of 1782-83 the concerto still figured significantly for him. When he sent its new finale, the Rondo (KV 382), to his father, he wrote, "I made it especially for me, and nobody but my dear sister can play it after me."
