Mozart Piano ConcertosDeutsche Grammophon
Featuring the beloved musical partnership of pianist Martha Argerich and the legendary late conductor, Claudio Abbado, Deutsche Grammophone releases two of Mozart's most spectacular piano concertos, No. 25 and No. 20. Ten years since their last recording together, Argerich and Abbado recorded this newly released album live at the 2013 Lucerne Festival. Mozart enjoyed experimenting with the piano concerto and during 1784 and 1786, the twelve he composed broke new musical ground. The Concertos in C major, K 503 (No. 25), and D minor, K 466 (No. 20), represent two contrasting milestones of this creative phase. Never released for publication, Mozart preferred to keep these concertos for a small circle of "music-lovers and connoisseurs" as shared in one of his letters.
