Album detail
Catalogue number: SU 4234-2

In August 2017 SUPRAPHON released an album containing two Mozart's Piano Concertos recorded by the superb pianist Jan Bartoš and the Czech Philharmonic conducted by Jiří Bělohlávek. The album has received a couple of appreciative reviews and now it can add another great success – the album has been chosen among the Best Recordings of 2017 according to the live review site Seen and Heard International. Congratulations!

What Bernard Jacobson said:
„Closer to the end of the year, this time not in the concert hall but on disc, an outstanding Supraphon Mozart recording had me thinking forwards rather than back. Jan Bartoš is not yet a name to be reckoned with in the way Moravec and Frager are, but his live performance of the D-minor Concerto with the late-lamented Jiří Bělohlávek and the Czech Philharmonic is evidence of a talent surely destined to achieve comparably vivid inspirations and illuminations many times in the years to come. From the very first notes of the solo part, Bartoš offers playing that might be characterized as ‘full of thinking’ – reminiscent, perhaps, of what we used to hear in the speech of Sir John Gielgud or the singing of Sir Peter Pears. It is no more than appropriate that two such masters of the voice should come to mind, for Bartoš’s pianism spans the gamut from speaking eloquence to singing grace with the utmost naturalness.“…est-of-2017/
