Overview

Keith Jarrett's Mozart has the stark elegance of a Japanese landscape painting. Jarrett's clearly etched phrases stand in bold relief from the crisp accompaniment of the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra conducted by Dennis Russell Davies. In the great D Minor Concerto (K. 466), the effect is unusually sober, diametrically opposed to Martha Argerich's hyper-dramatic approach. In Jarrett's hands, even the joyful finale of the E-flat Major Concerto (K. 271) is more like the Mona Lisa's smile than the giddy giggle other pianists depict. The imperturbable poise of these performances goes beyond classical restraint, suggesting something at once ultramodern and timeless, granitic and ethereal.
