Mozart: Piano Concertos Nos. 21 & 24

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Andrew Farach-Colton
Following his award-winning recording of Beethoven's Diabelli Variations, Piotr Anderszewski turns to Mozart. Born to Polish-Hungarian parents but trained in France, Anderszewski plays with equal parts elegance and dramatic flair. The rugged opening movement of the C Minor Concerto, for instance, is not as taut and hard-edged as usual, but the pianist's tender touch encompasses a wide range of emotions. The finale has a songful swing that seems as simple as a folk song, yet the angst lies just under the surface.

Barnes & Noble - Andrew Farach-Colton
Following his award-winning recording of Beethoven's Diabelli Variations, Piotr Anderszewski turns to Mozart. Born to Polish-Hungarian parents but trained in France, Anderszewski plays with equal parts elegance and dramatic flair. The rugged opening movement of the C Minor Concerto, for instance, is not as taut and hard-edged as usual, but the pianist's tender touch encompasses a wide range of emotions. The finale has a songful swing that seems as simple as a folk song, yet the angst lies just under the surface. The C Major Concerto, on the other hand, is pure sunlight, with a first movement full of gleaming grandeur, a dreamily delicate slow movement, and a frolicsome finale. Anderszewski conducts the Sinfonia Varsovia from the keyboard, eliciting subtle, colorful playing from this accomplished Polish chamber orchestra. In short, a Mozart recording of exceptional character and individuality from a musician whose career is on the rise.
Gramophone - David Fanning
Crescendos and diminuendos are steeply profiled, phrase endings taper into silence, grace-notes dart and flicker, rhythmic control is consummate... If you have room in your life for some challenging, maverick Mozart, Anderszewski offers a fine alternative.
International Record Review - Peter Branscombe
Anderszewski's pianism is of the highest order, with numerous passages of great poise and beauty.... These are committed performances, full of character.
