Perahia’s recordings of Mozart concertos


The famous pianist Murray Perahia between 1976 and 1984 recorded the solo piano concertos of Mozart, all 27 of them. He was not unique. Daniel Barenboim has recorded them, twice. These works range from Mozart's boyhood arrangements of other composers' pieces to No. 27, performed in 1791,  the last year of his life. We will sample some of Perahia's recordings.
