Notes & Reviews:

Pianists Julian Perkins and Emma Abbate have come together to record the first of two volumes of the complete piano duets of Mozart on original fortepianos. Some of Mozart's lesser-known works, his piano duets, span most of his active life, with the earliest written at the age of nine. Often delightful and lyrical as well as humorous and exciting, these works are given an authentic air on period instruments. Also included on this release is a duet by Johann Christian Bach. The two original fortepianos used in this recording form part of the Richard Burnett Collection of early keyboard instruments: a grand fortepiano by Johann Fritz (Vienna, c. 1815) and a travelling piano by Anton Walter (Vienna c. 1805). This release represents the final recording made at Finchcocks Musical Museum.
