Notes & Reviews:

In this final volume of Mozart's complete piano concertos, Ronald Brautigam and Die Kölner Akademie, listeners are treated to Mozart's very earliest attempts in the genre. In these works, young Mozart expands his existing sonata movements into proper concertos, many believe this was a task given to him by his father, Leopold. After a few years, Mozart adopted a more mature approach to the concertos but still used arrangements of sonatas as inspiration. "An ideal mixture of clarity and stylish effervescene" - International Record Review

MusicWeb International, 23rd November 2016
Brautigam and Willens complete their superb Mozart concerto series with four very early pasticcio works.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2017
Those wedded to Brautigam's Mozart cycle will need no encouragement from me, but such is the communicativeness of the playing on this disc that its appeal reaches well beyond that.
