The early death of award-winning pianist and conductor Lars Vogt on September 5, 2022 was a profound shock to the international music world. Some 16 months earlier, already aware of his diagnosis and in the middle of his treatment sessions, the artist had an urgent desire to record a Mozart piano concerto album along with the Paris Chamber Orchestra, of which he became Music Director in 2020. For this album, Vogt coupled two concertos: the early, exuberant Piano Concerto No. 9, Jeunehomme, written by Mozart in his early 20s, and the melancholic and nostalgic Piano Concerto No. 24, which is considered by many to be Mozart’s greatest piano concerto.
