The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra is one of the finest and most impressive arts organizations in Los Angeles. Jeffrey Kahane, the conductor, is a brilliant and inspiring pianist. His traversal of the Mozart piano concerti in the anniversary year is rich, elegant, heartfelt, and deeply merry--full of joy.
Quotes & Highlights
- “Indeed, one might wonder whether Mozart, a celebrated pianist, really played with much greater conviction, brilliance, individuality or finesse than Kahane brought to the magnificent 25th Concerto.” -–Detroit News
Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra
Jeffrey Kahane, conductor and piano
Piano Concerto No. 16 in D major
Piano Concerto No. 18 in B-flat major
Piano Concerto No. 25 in C major
The 1784 concertos, written when Mozart was the toast of Vienna, were both published successfully during his lifetime, No. 16 in 1785, and No. 18 in 1787.
Piano Concerto No. 25 (1786) was only published after Mozart's death when his widow pursued this "risky venture" herself. As she feared, Constanze was forced to sell the engraved plates of her 1797 edition to recoup her losses.
