Together with pianist Julian Trevelyan and the ORF Radio Symphony Orchestra Vienna, Christian Zacharias recorded Mozart’s Piano Concertos in A major K 488 & C minor K 49 on alpha classics earlier this year. Tomorrow the CD Next Generation Mozart Soloists Vol. 4 will be released by the orpheum foundation.
The bright, very lightly scored Piano Concerto in A major is one of Mozart’s most popular and on the CD it forms a contrast with the Piano Concerto in C minor, with an unusually large instrumentation for Mozart. With his agile approach and accurate coordination, Christian Zacharias accompanies the young Trevelyan with refinement yet determination.
