Mozart: Piano Concertos, K. 415, 175 & 503
Alessandrini, Rinaldo; Divertissement; Cavé, Olivier
This album combines a well known pianist who has already recorded multiple successful albums and a conductor whose ventures into Mozart are always equally successful. Olivier Cave was a student of Nelson Goerner, Maria Tipo, and Aldo Ciccolini. His playing is refined and virtuosic, and his recordings of Clementi, Haydn, and Scarlatti have all been praised by audiences and critics alike. Conductor Rinaldo Alessandrini formed this orchestra specifically for this recording. He and the ensemble Divertissement will embark on a European tour centered around this program me along with Mozart’s symphonies. This program me follow’s the composer from his youth to his maturity, from Concerto no. 5 was written when Mozart was only 17, all the way to No. 25 which was written at his peak in the same year as Le Nozze di Figaro. All of these works are stylishly performed by all musicians involved.
