The chief attraction of this Mozart concerto disc by British pianist Valerie Tryon would seem to be the presence of the little-played cadenza by ultra-virtuoso Polish-American pianist Leopold Godowsky in the Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, K. 491. And indeed it's quite a revelation. Not at all the Lisztian extravaganza one might expect, it's a flowing, rather meditative essay borne of a deep admiration for Mozart, who wasn't much played by pianists in the 1920s except for a few big works. The booklet (in English, French, and German) reprints some useful Godowsky writings from the 1920s in this regard. The cadenza has some Chopin-level chromaticism, and the producers put it on a track of its own so that listeners who prefer to can substitute the more usual Hummel cadenza, also provided on a separate track, by programming their CD players. But such listeners would miss the artful ways in which Tryon and conductor Robert Trory, leading the London Symphony Orchestra, fuse Tryon's own rather low-key style with the cadenza. Her playing in the Beethovenian C minor concerto is not so dramatic, but she and Trory gradually deepen the texture over the course of the first movement so as to build up tension. The spacious Piano Concerto No. 25 in C major, K. 503, almost an essay in pure texture, fares especially well in Tryon's hands (this concerto is given Hummel's cadenza in the opening movement), and the slow movements of both works are gorgeously subtle and lyrical. The Rondo for piano and orchestra in A major, K. 386, serves as an ideal entr'acte between the two concertos. Even in a British scene with no shortage of Mozart concerto recordings on contemporary instruments, this is a standout release that should find a wide audience.

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.

Nelson Freire, a Humble Virtuoso

A child prodigy in his native country, the Brazilian pianist who passed away in November 2021 kept his distance from the noisy fanfare of fame. His enormous hands and his natural and virtuoso technique always assisted his full, powerful and mellow sound. Here Qobuz looks back at the career of a musician that for a long time was the “best-kept secret in the world of the piano”.
