Notes & Reviews:
Bringing together Mozart's complete solo piano concertos, performed by the inimitable Daniel Barenboim, this collection showcases the composer's development of the genre, ranging from his early pasticcio works to those of powerful compositional prowess as he began to carve his name in musical history. Barenboim conducts from the piano, leading the English Chamber Orchestra in performances of breathtaking passion and verve.
Daniel Barenboim was born in Buenos Aires in 1942. He received his first piano lessons from his mother at age five, and later studied under his father, who would remain his only piano teacher. He gave his first public concert when he was seven. At age ten, Daniel Barenboim gave his international debut performance as a solo pianist in Vienna and Rome; Paris (1955), London (1956), and New York (1957) then followed, where he played with Leopold Stokowski. Since then, he has regularly toured Europe and the United States, but also South America, Australia, and the Far East. Barenboim had his conducting debut in 1967 with the London Philharmonia Orchestra. Since this early conducting debut, Daniel Barenboim has won numerous awards and has been in great demand with leading orchestras around the world.
