As far as we know, Mozart composed 27 concertos for piano and orchestra. In this recording we hear this final concerto, together with the concerto number 25. This pairing of concertos Nos 25 and 27 were recorded with Chamber Orchestra of Europe, with pianist and conductor Piotr Anderszewski.
“In Mozart I tend to prefer to direct from the keyboard,” Anderszewski explains, “His concertos are like chamber works…The piano is in dialogue with the orchestra, conversing and interacting all the time. The two works are very different …No 25 is very grand, complex and sophisticated; No 27, Mozart’s final piano concerto, is in a major key, but underneath it I sense an incredible sadness … It always amazes me how deep this music is.””
