Franz Xaver Mozart was born just four months before the death of his father, Wolfgang Amadeus. A pianist of similarly precocious talent, he nevertheless wrote just two piano concertos: coupled with Clementi’s only surviving essay in the genre, they make a sparkling addition to our Classical Piano Concerto series.


Poor Franz Xaver Mozart. Always in the shadow of his famous father, this precocious pianist struggled to make a significant career, even when billing himself “WA Mozart Jnr” on endless European concert tours. His first piano concerto, from 1809, is a homage to Mozart senior’s Viennese concertos … The second, however, is more distinctly his own; noble and broad in conception with some bravura writing for the soloist, engagingly played here by the admirable Howard Shelley.  Stephen Pritchard
