Both these works were written in Salzburg. The Concerto for two pianos was intended for performance by Mozart and his sister. With his justly famous Sinfonia concertante, boundlessly energetic in the outer movements and including a slow movement of quite remarkable poignancy, Mozart achieved one of his finest orchestral works before arriving in Vienna.

Gramophone made this recording ‘Critics’ Choice’ on its original release, describing it as bringing ‘performances at once scintillating and polished’.

Classic CD wrote of the performances, ‘Iona Brown has the full measure of these works’ individuality and her direction, always alert to the implications of modulations, tempo and dynamic markings, is outstanding’.

Right off the bat in the first movement of the piano concerto, the orchestral balance is so exquisite that you even hear how the violas and cellos function – no matter how attractive the piano work is, you keep an ear out for the orchestra from start to finish. Part of the reason is that Brown elicits such invigorating impulse and energy from all the player – orchestra and soloists. Their attacks and degrees of shading are not just upbeat but inventive.
