Notes & Reviews:

Christian Zacharias completes his prizewinning recording cycle of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's piano concertos with the Coronation Concerto KV 537. The members of the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne, whom he has conducted for twelve years, have been his partners from start to finish. In each and every measure the pianist and orchestra have grown together over the years. Every transition is just right, the orchestra alertly and naturally responds to the liberties taken by the soloist, and together they generate enchanting colors and engage in intimate dialogue. The timpani and trumpets in the key of D major produce the special radiance associated with the Coronation Concerto. Mozart, actually, did no more than sketch the solo part. The complete part penned by somebody else in the first edition contains only what is absolutely necessary. Christian Zacharias designs his own version, and it holds a special surprise in store in the cadenza of the first movement. The MDG recording of Mozart's complete piano concertos has also set standards in the field of audio technique. The release of the Concerto KV 503 was the first serially produced DVD audio in highresolution multichannel sound. And four Super Audio CDs (SACDs) - of course in flawless 2+2+2 sound for ultimate 3D listening pleasure - have been awarded the Echo Klassik Prize, two for the best multichannel recording.
