1 CD in hardback booklet

Released 3 November 2023


[Robert Levin] and violinist Bojan Čičić play off of one another like friendly rivals at an after-hours jam session, oblivious to any audience or recording device. As with previous AAM label releases in this series, the production values are on the highest level, from gorgeous sound to a lavishly annotated hardcover 59-page booklet... – Gramophone

...the less familiar [Concerto] No. 7 almost steals the show with its charm, sparking passagework, and give and take between the soloists’ parts. – Boston Sunday Globe (2023 highlights)

Technically, Levin is among the top fortepianists, and he plays absolutely ravishingly interpretively as well. – Pizzicato ★★★★★

From the outset, their lively and spontaneous performances promised one of the finest of all recorded cycles. (AAM041) – Financial Times

Academy of Ancient Music (AAM) continues an acclaimed project to record Mozart’s complete works for keyboard and orchestra, with this eleventh volume of the series. Renowned pianists Robert Levin and Ya-Fei Chuang join Laurence Cummings and AAM to present Mozart’s Concertos Nos. 7 and 10, the former of which is recorded here in Mozart’s own arrangement for two pianos. Also included is the Concerto Movement for Piano, Violin, and Orchestra, completed by Robert Levin. The hardback CD package is accompanied by comprehensive notes commissioned specially for the album.

This release is part of the renewal of a landmark project begun in 1993 on the Decca label to record Mozart’s entire works for keyboard. It will be followed by the two final albums of the series in 2024.
