MOZART: Concertos 11-12

A one-time protégé of Arthur Rubinstein, pianist Janina Fialkowska’s artistry is all the more astonishing considering her return to the concert stage in 2004 following the removal of an aggressive tumour in her left arm. For this recording, she joins the Chamber Players of Canada to perform arrangements of Mozart’s piano concertos K. 413 – 415 for piano and string quintet. Her 2004 recording of Chopin piano concertos with the Chamber Players was greeted with unanimous praise, and her recent performance of the Mozart concertos prompted The Toronto Star’s music critic John Terauds to declare, “ Fialkowska and her partners lent the evening intimacy … they breathed into the music a lithe vibrancy that can often elude the big orchestra … Reducing the players to six … highlighted every effect that Mozart had penned into the score. These performers are scheduled to sit down and record these concertos soon. If the concert is any indication, this will be a Mozart disc to treasure.”
