Lars Vogt

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).
