Mozart – Piano Concertos 23 & 24




Mozart's Piano Concertos nos.23 and 24 were composed during the 1785-1786 season, at the same time as Le Nozze di Figaro: a prosperous period for the musician. Brilliant and eloquent but also tender and dizzy, the piano sounds with fullness, particularly in the poignant and extremely famous Andante of the Concerto no.23.

Granted by the prestigious Mozart Prize at the Cleveland International Piano Competition, François Chaplin has recorded a delicate version of those two scores. His refined style blooms in a sensitive dialogue with of the Orchestre Victor Hugo conducted by Jean-François Verdier, and delivers the very beauty of Mozart's music.


In the press

Le jeu perlé de Chaplin s'épanouit dans l'écrin généreux de l'Orchestre Victor Hugo placé sous la baguette du chef Jean-François Verdier, et livre toute l'évidence de la beauté mozartienne.

Tout du long, cet art de la suggestion change drastiquement le visage de l'oeuvre.
