The Genius of Mozart

Mozart’s piano concertos trace the rapid development of his genius. The example numbered 25 was the last in an extraordinary batch in which Mozart’s quest to wed beauty and nobility, entertainment and innovation, reached new heights. Under the fingers of Alim Beisembayev, winner of 2021 Leeds Piano Competition, Mozart’s majestic, mercurial piano concerto follows the composer’s joyous Divertimento in D major and precedes his symphony in the form of a swaggering, boisterous serenade − in the same bright, blazing key.
