Free download: Mozart Piano Concerto No. 5 / K175, I. Allegro (on organ)
This week's free download features the opening movement of Mozart's very first original piano concerto, composed at the age of 17
This week's free download features the opening movement from Mozart's very first piano concerto – played on the organ.
The performance is taken from the latest in the series of Mozart recordings made by the Academy of Ancient Music and soloist Robert Levin. On this latest disc, Levin continues to 'venture further into the enchanting milieu of historical keyboards,' as our reviewer Ingrid Pearson puts it.
For his performance of K175, Mozart's first self-composed piano concerto (previous efforts were based on works by other composers), Levin chooses the organ – a 1760 instrument made by George England and housed in a south London church. And this reimagining of Mozart's debut keyboard concerto is, says Ingrid, 'enchanting', with the Academy also on top form with its lean string lines and uplifting wind and brass sonorities.
