Mozart: Piano Concertos Nos. 18 & 22 – Imogen Cooper, Northern Sinfonia

The acclaimed pianist Imogen Cooper has seen her highly regarded career blossom, due to her recordings of Schubert’s late solo piano works and Mozart Piano Concertos on Avie. Her Schubert series has appeared in the Top 10 of the UK’s Specialist Classical Chart, and has been hailed by the international media, from the BBC to National Public Radio, and Gramophone to The New York Times. This release is her third of Mozart concertos directing the Northern Sinfonia from the keyboard, an instrument that Cooper selected specially for the spectacular Sage Gateshead when the venue opened in 2004. The synergy between soloist and orchestra results in a poetic clarity that befits Mozart’s late works.

"...those seeking recordings of Mozart piano concertos that reflect the best melding of modern instruments and period-performance practice can turn to this disc with complete confidence."

James A Altena - Fanfare - March/April 2011


"...Magnificently played, generously accompanied and taped in the near-perfect acoustic of The Sage, Gateshead – what’s not to like?"

Graham Rickson
 

theartsdesk.com - 20 November 2010

"...she [Imogen Cooper] shines as a musician of taste, temperament and style consciousness."

"...her playing reminds us of the miracles both works encompass and why Mozart stands as the supremem master of the piano concerto."
