Lars Vogt is one of the most distinguished German
contemporary pianists. His distinct enthusiasm for
chamber music is a welcome change to the pure virtuoso
skills and the limited range of grand gestures
displayed by a mere “ivory tickler”. His views allow
us to expect especially accomplished Mozart interpretations,
as the “pieces of luck” presented here show.
Together with the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg
conducted by Ivor Bolton, he made two live recordings
in Salzburg (K. 488 from the opening concert
of the Karajan anniversary year in January 2008, K.
466 from the Mozart matinees during the Salzburg
Festival in 2008).
