The third volume of Vassily Primakovís much acclaimed Mozart Piano Concerto series features two of Mozart's greatest concertos.

Scored for a small orchestra without clarinets, trumpets or drums, the Piano Concerto No.17 in G major K453 is one of Mozartís most graceful concertos, typically mingling a sense of gaiety with melancholic undertones.

Urbane and aristocratic in character, the Piano Concerto No.22 in E flat, K482 gains a warmth of sound from the orchestraís inclusion of clarinets instead of oboes Ė the first time Mozart had done so in a concerto. Vassily Primakov plays Mozartís own cadenzas in K453 and those of Camille Saint-SaŽns in K482.

ď[Primakov's] limpid playing is a pleasure throughout, as is the Odense Symphony Orchestra's stylish contribution.Ē -
BBC Music Magazine ***** on Vol.2

ďThe piano playing is of exceptional quality: refined, multi-coloured, elegant of phrase and immaculately balanced, both in itself and in relation to the effortlessly stylish orchestra.Ē - BBC Music Magazine **** on Vol.1
