Mozart: 3 Piano Concertos K107; Symphony No 14

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
Piano Concertos K107 Nos. 1-3
Symphony No. 12 in A, K114
Malcolm Bilson, Fortepiano
Orchestra of the Old Fairfield Academy, Thomas Crawford
Music Heritage Society 513396K
For those of you familiar with Malcolm Bilson's complete recording of the Mozart Piano Concertos (with John Eliot Gardiner and the English Barorque Soloists on the DG Archiv Produktion Label,) they were not quite complete. The cycle began with his first true concerto (No. 5 in D, K175) but omitted all the pasticci concerti written before that. Mr. Bilson makes ammends by adding the the three concertos K107 based on sonatas by JC Bach thus making a true complete recording, by him, of all the piano piano concertos. As far as I know, this is the only CD ever made of these concertos played on a fortepiano (there are plenty on the harpsichord.) The CD is rounded off with the Symphony K114 which starts off this disc.
