The effervescent and communicative energy of pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet and conductor Gábor Takács-Nagy is encapsulated again in this second volume of their series devoted to Mozart’s piano concertos. The two concertos presented here are among the six that Mozart composed in Vienna in an extraordinarily productive year. As Bavouzet states in the notes, they “share their association with operatic and symphonic styles. The contrasts of mood in their first movements and the cantilenas which serve as second movements relate them more closely with music for the operatic stage, while their finales are conceived in purely instrumental terms and make reference to the symphonic domain.”
