The four great concertos on this new album span the years 1785 – 1791, Mozart’s last year. The range of emotions these works convey is extraordinary. No.20 in D Minor left the audience at the premiere reeling. It is terse, angry and full of passion. The C Major concerto No.21 in contrast, is sunny, bright and full of optimism. No. 23 in A Major is bathed in a feeling of warm contentment. The wistful and heartfelt Adagio is especially striking. No. 27 in B Flat of 1791 is an autumnal work of intense sadness, almost as if the composer sensed his life was coming to an end. ‘Sombart’s playing is superb: technically precise, but possessing a flexibility and freedom that lets the music breath’ The Observer.
