About

The sixth disc in this highly acclaimed series combines two works in which Mozart's powers as an orchestrator come to the fore.

Piano Concerto No.22 is the first of only three piano concertos in which Mozart uses clarinets, to particular effect in the expressive 'Andantino cantabile' episode of the otherwise ebullient Finale. The orchestra is on the whole unusually large, with trumpets and timpani, and horn parts which are uncommonly independent.
