Notes & Reviews:

Hyperion is delighted to present Angela Hewitt’s third volume of Mozart piano concertos. Here Hewitt is joined by her compatriot National Arts Centre Orchestra of Canada and frequent collaborator Hannu Lintu for sparklingly stylish renditions of Mozart’s Piano Concertos Nos. 22 and 24. Both of these works were written between December 1785 and March 1786. For the first time in a piano concerto orchestration, in No.22 he uses clarinets - an instrument that became a regular member of orchestras only in the 1780s. No. 24 is a dark and passionate work, made more striking by its classical restraint.
