Howard Shelley pianist-conductor
London Mozart Players
Mozart Explored is a series that aims to unearth and explore both Mozart’s best-loved and lesser-known piano concertos. With short illustrated introductions to the concerto from Howard Shelley as well as a full performance of the work, these concerts offer listeners a unique and personal insight into understanding the characteristics of Mozart’s compositional style.
The last of three concerti written in quick succession for his own use, this work demands great technical prowess of the soloist. Exuberant trumpet and timpani parts as Mozart hail a more confident style of concerto writing.
