Francesco Piemontesi, SCO & Andrew Manze - Mozart: Piano Concertos 25 & 26 - The Irish Times

Piemontesi and conductor Andrew Manze, with his background in period performing style, are probing, interventionist Mozarteans. Piemontesi numbers Alfred Brendel among his teachers, and his style is intense and rich enough in micro-detail to make even Brendel sound easy-going. Both pianist and conductor bring a high intelligence to bear and make this often weighty and sometimes almost Beethovenian approach to Mozart fully absorbing.
