Notes & Reviews:

Established in 2006, the period instrument ensemble La Petite Symphonie specializes in music of the eighteenth century. Led by artistic director and keyboard soloist Daniel Isoir, the ensemble offers their own unique perspective on the music of Haydn, Mozart, and other key composers from the period. Their interpretations focus on the spirit of chamber music that is present in most of the period's repertoire. On this disc featuring three great piano concertos by Mozart, Isoir directs from the keyboard, in this case, a copy of a fortepiano by Johann Andreas Stein, the maker preferred by Mozart.

BBC Music Magazine
This period performance feels ideally balanced, with one-instrument-per-part sounding like a full orchestra: the 'pianoforte' has great charm.

Gramophone Magazine
With two solitary violins, the slow melodic lines of K449's andantino sound distressingly thin; and, though the prominence of woodwind and horns in K595 is welcome, their sudden fanfare bursting across the murmured opening is out of all proportion. Yet the zest of the performances silences objections." Sunday Times
