It is a remarkable project that the Swiss Orpheum Foundation has launched in the middle of the difficult pandemic period of 2020: all of Mozart's instrumental concertos will be recorded for a CD edition in order to offer a platform to young and talented instrumentalists who have already proven themselves in competitions and on concert podiums. Under the title "Next Generation Mozart Soloists", these recordings will be made together with the Vienna RSO and the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg.
Aron Pilsan und Howard Griffiths
Howard Griffiths conducts almost all recordings; for individual works, Christian Zacharias and Thomas Zehetmair are on the podium. Howard Griffiths about Mozart's music:
"like looking in the mirror: you can hear whether the intonation is right, the rhythm, the phrasing, the tempo and the musicality [...]"
The first two CDs of the total of 17 (!) albums have already been released on the Alpha Classics label. The third CD will be the first recording with the Vienna RSO.
