Notes & Reviews:

On their fifth disc of Mozart's concertos, an ongoing series which has been described as 'a lucky break and a true delight' in the German magazine Piano News, Ronald Brautigam and Die Kolner Akademie perform Concerto No.20 in D minor and Piano Concerto No.27 in B flat major, K595.

MusicWeb International, 27th September 2013
Only the terminally averse to the fortepiano and/or smallish orchestras need stay away from any of these recordings...The smallish orchestra and the solo instrument are well balanced so that the former sounds full-bodied; not large-scale, but by no means pint-sized or desiccated...and the soloist shines without being too forward.

BBC Music Magazine, April 2014
Brautigam and Michael Alexander Willens are never exactly slouches when it comes to tempos, and they give a breathlessly agitated account of the opening movement of the D minor Concerto K466...the slow movement of [K595] is decidedly on the flowing side...but the performance on the whole is one that commands attention. Recommended.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
This is the fifth recording in Brautigam's series of Mozart piano concertos and the first to cross my review path. They are very recommendable. Brautigam's instrument was made by Paul McNulty in 2011, after Walter & Sohn, c. 1802. The booklet has a photograph plus additional information. It is a fine sounding fortepiano, closer to a piano than the harpsichord-like instruments many are familiar with. Brautigam is a sensitive artist and brings as much subtlety as he can to this sublime music.
