Winner of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2011, pianist Benjamin Hochman’s eloquent and virtuosic performances blend colorful artistry with poetic interpretation, exciting audiences and critics alike. Hochman brings his new conducting skills to this release of two Mozart concertos: the joyful and lithe No. 17 in G major, and the dark and explosive No. 24 in C minor. Directing from the keyboard, Benjamin leads a fine Mozartian ensemble, the English Chamber Orchestra.
