Austrian pianist Gottlieb Wallisch's debut on Linn features a selection of Mozart's best-loved works, all composed in Vienna during one of the composer's most fruitful periods: 1781-91.

Wallisch's debut on Linn, Mozart in Vienna, features a selection of Mozart's best-loved works, all composed in Vienna during one of the composer's most fruitful periods: 1781-91. Wallisch expertly demonstrates Mozart's quintessential style: his skill at improvisation (Fantasie, KV. 397), his humour (Variationen, KV. 455) and his more intimate, melancholic side (Rondo, KV. 511).

Two of Mozart's finest sonatas are also included and they allow Wallisch to display his deep understanding of the music of his fellow Austrian, as well as his impressive technical and interpretative skills. The Viennese pianist has performed this repertoire internationally to great acclaim: "His playing is a thing of rare beauty and a joy to behold...This is a must for all Mozart mavens." (Fanfare). Recorded in St George's, Bristol, which is regarded as one of the best chamber venues in Britain, Wallish gives a stylish and individual performance of some of Mozart's finest piano works.
