Kristian Bezuidenhout, Artistic Director of the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, returns to his series of Mozart Piano Concertos. For this release, the Jeunehomme Concerto, K. 271, a vehicle of rather unexpected musical daring, is paired with K. 456. The origins of these concertos may each be traced to a woman. K. 271 takes its nickname from the work’s dedicatee: the piano virtuoso Louise Victoire Jenamy, daughter of a friend of Mozart. As for K. 456, it was apparently composed for Maria Theresia von Paradis, a blind pianist acclaimed throughout Europe.
