Robert Levin’s new Mozart piano concerto disc with Academy of Ancient Music featuring concertos no. 21 in C major (K467) and no. 24 in C minor (K491) has been released today.
Having begun this first ever recording of the complete works of Mozart for keyboard and orchestra on period instruments in 1993 with the founder of Academy of Ancient Music Christopher Hogwood, now, nearly 30 years later, the recordings have been completed with Richard Egarr and the present director of AAM Laurence Cummings. The following albums will be coming out between now and June 2024, during AAM’s 50th anniversary season. It will be the only existing complete recording of Mozart concertos featuring the artist playing on four different keyboard instruments – fortepiano, harpsichord, organ and tangent piano. As ever with Robert’s performances of Mozart, all concertos were recorded with fully improvised cadenzas.
