20 years after her critically acclaimed début at the Salzburg Festival as Susanna In Mozart’s Le Nozze Di Figaro, Dorothea Röschmann releases her first solo Mozart album, including famous arias from Don Giovanni and Le Nozze Di Figaro. Dorothea Röschmann is in the prime of her voice and referred to 'as one of the leading Mozart sopranos today“ (Der Tagesspiegel). The CD track list not only reflects her at her glorious best, but is also a dream come true for Dorothea: “Mozart is the reason I wanted to do opera,” she says.

This is a series which continues to redefine the standards by which these works should be performed. As before, the music spans most of Mozart’s life, from 1763—when he was just seven years old—to 1782, and (another) unfinished present written for his new wife Constanze.

Recorded at the Golden Hall in the Musikverein Vienna in 2012, this is two of the most important works of Mozart’s ‘middle’ period that Harnoncourt has never recorded with a period-instrument orchestra before. Harnoncourt is well known for his unique interpretation of Mozart and this is reflected by the highly flexible playing and phrasing from the orchestra. This album marks the 60th anniversary of the collaboration between Nikolaus Harnoncourt and the Concentus Musicus Wien.

This is the pianist Menahem Pressler’s second disc for La Dolce Volta, recorded at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris in September 2014. Here we meet a Mozart bathed in total serenity, as if freed from all earthly contingencies and tensions, gently singing of his state of grace, with a wonderfully tender touch. An interpretation deeply moving in its very simplicity, its sheer tranquil poetry, brimming with love and affection. Here is a miraculous disc by a humble servant of music at the peak of his inspiration.

In this second volume of his Mozart cycle, Menahem Pressler invests the music with a serenity and tenderness rarely attained in this repertory. He allows himself time to breathe, immersing himself in his sonority and giving priority to variety of colour, underlining changes of harmony, and the shaping of each phrase.

Renowned early music pioneer Sigiswald Kuijken and his Piano Quartet approach Mozart's Piano Quartets K. 478 and K. 493 on this release for Challenge Records. A significant figure in the creation of this genre, Mozart was prompted to write these quartets by a commission from the publisher Franz Anton Hoffmeister, who subsequently declared that K. 478 was too difficult for the amateur market. This performance of the quartets is truly a family affair with Kuijken joined by his daughters Sara and Veronica, along with cellist Michel Boulanger.

Bis etwa 1770 war die Sonate für Geige und Klavier - mit wenigen Ausnahmen - vor allem eine Klaviersonate mit Violinbegleitung. Mit Mozart hat sich das geändert. Er hat die Gattung zu einer der kunstvollsten Formen der Kammermusik entwickelt. Der Geiger und Dirigent Riccardo Minasi (Grammy-Award, BBC Music Magazine Award für 'Stella di Napoli' mit Joyce DiDonato) hat sich für sein neues Album drei der prägnantesten Werke ausgesucht: die Sonaten D-Dur KV 306, F-Dur-Sonate KV 376 und B-Dur-Sonate KV 454.

Für seine erste, sehr erfolgreiche Aufnahme mit Klavierkonzerten Mozarts hat Martin Stadtfeld von der Presse großes Lob bekommen. Jetzt widmet er sein neues Doppel-Album dem jungen Mozart. Zwei »Salzburger Klavierkonzerte« hat er mit dem Mozarteum Orchester Salzburg unter Mozart-Spezialist Ivor Bolten eingespielt: das erste Klavierkonzert KV 37 des 10-jährigen Mozart (von 1766) und das lange als »Jeunehomme« bekannte Klavierkonzert Nr. 9, KV 271, welches 10 Jahre später entstand und als erstes Meister-Konzert gilt. Für beide Konzerte schrieb Stadtfelld neue Kadenzen.
