Description

Although they are numbered 5 & 6, these concertos are actually the first ones that Mozart wrote himself. Concertos 1-4 and the three concertos which are K 107 are actually arrangements of keyboard sonatas by other composers which Mozart turned into piano concertos.)

Mozart wrote concerto No.5 at the ripe old age of 17. He was apparently so fond of it and it proved to be such a success that he continued to perform it for 10 years!

The Concerto No. 6 was written primarily to show off Mozart’s exceptional keyboard skills. After writing it, he took it on tour with him and performed it in concerts in both Augsburg and Mannheim. Fortunately, the cadenzas he wrote have survived, written in a hand that appears to be his father’s.

Give a listen to the genius of a 17-year-old wunderkind; you won’t be disappointed!

  1. Kölner Akademie Icon

    Klassik Heute

    Michael Alexander Willens hält die Kölner Akademie zu einem sensiblen, feinnervigen Musizierstil an. Da wird genau phrasiert ohne pedantisch zu sein, da ist auch die Artikulation konsistent, die Klangbalance stimmt und dynamische Effekte werden affektbetont aber nie effektheischend placiert. Geistreich und geistvoll, so kann man das ebenso kantable wie präzise Spiel des Orchesters zusammenfassen. Gleichzeitig wird durchweg so energiegeladen und elanvoll musiziert, dass Mozarts Musik stets frisch, unverbraucht und spritzig klingt.
