W. A. MOZART: PIANO QUARTETS / RONDO CONCERTANTE (arr. D. Lazić)

Mozart’s two piano quartets are both masterpieces and among the greatest chamber works in the repertoire. The Rondo concertante is arranged from the last movement of the piano sonata K333, which unusually has a cadenza passage, which lead pianist Dejan Lazić to make a version for piano and orchestra.

On this recording a version for piano quintet brings the music in another fresh guise and you’d be hard pressed to know it wasn’t by Mozart himself.

Lazić is joined by friends he has performed with for years but this is actually his first recording of chamber music in a long recording career. The result is joyful, intimate music making, of the sort only musicians who have a lifetime of performing together can achieve. (Onyx Classics)
