Notes & Reviews:

Here is the eagerly anticipated follow-up to Maurizio Pollini's acclaimed 2006 recording of Mozart's Piano Concertos in G, K. 453 and in C, K. 467, in which he not only plays but directs the nonpareil Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. In the summer of 2007 he and the Vienna Philharmonic recorded the early, cheerful Piano Concerto in A, K. 414 and the famous C minor Concerto, K. 491, a mature work of brooding pathos. Once again, Pollini and the Vienna Philharmonic work without a conductor, in front of a live audience in Vienna's famous Musikverein, parlaying their deep mutual understanding and respect into one of the noblest and most profound Mozart experiences imaginable.

When you are in love, you can never get enough, so Pollini has done it again: in summer 2007 he and the Wiener Philharmoniker recorded the early Piano Concerto in A major, K. 414 and the famous C minor Concerto, K. 491, a work characterised by its brooding pathos. As with his first Mozart recording, Pollini's relationship with the Wiener Philharmoniker is again unmediated by a conductor - an enterprise that presupposes the deep mutual understanding of the partners. The result is one of the noblest and most profound Mozart experiences imaginable.
