Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20, one of Beethoven’s favorites, has a verve and intensity that one seldom associates with the musical genius. It is no wonder that Beethoven not only favored this concerto, but also wrote a cadenza that evokes, in a Beethovenian way, the energy and intensity of the work. The Symphony No. 41, appropriately nicknamed “Jupiter,” is a towering and majestic work. The charming Overture to Il re Pastore (1775), written when he was only 19, is quintessential Mozart–a microcosm of drama, elegance and ease. 

Pianist Orli Shaham is “a first-rate Mozartean.”  — The Chicago Tribune
