Karin Kei Nagano joins forces with the Cecilia String Quartet, for Mozart - Piano Concertos in A major, K. 414, and C major, K. 415. This pair of attractive and highly crafted piano concertos from 1782 are among the first such works Mozart composed after moving from Salzburg to Vienna in order to pursue his career as an independent artist. The woodwind parts are not structurally essential in these concertos, and Mozart himself authorized performances of the pieces a quattro, by a pianist with string quartet accompaniment, as in the present recording. What is thereby lost in sheer volume of sound can be gained through nuance, and these pieces are very effectively conveyed in the more intimate context of chamber music.
