Mozart Piano Concertos CD Review (Classic FM)

Classic FM Album of the Week!

'What is striking about the Orli Shaham/David Robertson collaboration, is how well it communicates feelings and expressions that seem "Mozartean" even though there is nothing historically accurate about the recording at all. The orchestra is too large for Mozart's time, the piano far too big and resonant, the cadenzas not at all in Mozart's style (especially in the first movement of Concerto No. 24), and Shaham's playing is far too focused on the emotionally expressive passages... the recording is absolutely first-rate. Shaham and Robertson clearly have deep feelings for Mozart that they know how to translate into feelings to be shared with an at-home audience. It is extraordinarily difficult to listen to this recording without giving it full attention... Shaham and Robertson connect with tremendous skill in performances that are fully and beautifully integrated from start to finish.'
