Piano
Composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). Instrumental Solo Part and 2 CDs. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3014).

Item Number: MO.MMOCD3014
ISBN 1596150122.

This concerto, one of only two Mozart wrote in a minor key, is by far the most famous of all his piano concerti and is filled with profound music of the highest order as well as lively and charming themes. Among its later, most ardent admirers were Beethoven and Brahms. Demands sensitivity from the soloist, and is an important work for every pianist to study and learn. This deluxe 2CD set includes a slow-tempo practice version to help you get up to speed.

Includes a printed solo part (with orchestral reduction) on high-quality ivory paper; a digital stereo compact disc featuring a complete performance of the concerto with orchestra and soloist, and a second performance minus you, the soloist; and a second compact disc containing a full-speed version of the complete version as well as a special -20% slow-tempo version of the accompaniment for practice purposes. The concerto is voluminously indexed for your practice and performance convenience.

    Oof. The intonation of the orchestra is simply dreadful in places. The outer movements are not so bad, but the Romanze is tough on the ears and even has a few sour notes.

    The practice version is not that fast as another reviewer has stated once you have mastered the concerto. The metronome marking for the first part is about 123 and not at all stable throughout. This is what I do not like about this CD. Other than that I bet it...

    would be a useful study tool.
