Notes & Reviews:

"In a month that includes fabulous discs for pianophiles, ranging from vintage Richter to the all-conquering Paul Lewis, Imogen Cooper once again reminds us of her own very individual, melodic style with her excellent new Mozart disc. She clearly feels this music deeply and infectiously communicates that sense to the listener." -Gramophone (Editor's Choice selection)

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
Imogen Cooper's strongly projected, stylistically sensitive performance stands up even alongside such distinguished modern versions as Uchida, Brendel and Schiff. With crystalline articulation and an exhilarating range of colour and dynamics, Cooper never lets you forget that the so-called Jeunehomme (K271) is a concerto of radical extremes, both within and between movements. In the opening Allegro especially admirable is her vocal lyricism in the 'second subject', her powerfully directed passagework and the impassioned sweep of the wonderful modulating sequences near the start of the recapitulation... Anyone who wants this particular coupling will find Cooper and the Northern Sinfonia (wonderfully tangy clarinets, incidentally, in K488) among the subtlest, liveliest and most probing of Mozartians.

Sunday Telegraph
In the flood of Mozart recordings, this disc (... ) stands out for its clarity and artistry.

The Independent on Sunday
The dialogue between keyboard and orchestra is highly developed and the quality of sound is superb.
