Piano Concertos Nos. 14 & 21
Steven Lubin, fortepiano solo, conductor
Mozartean Players Classical Orchestra
"While the quick decay of the 18th-century fortepiano allows for the clear articulation of agile moments and interplay
between the soloist and the orchestra (here the excellent Mozartean Players), Lubin's vibrant playing transforms it from
merely interesting to consistently engaging."
"[Steven Lubin's] playing is sharply etched and ruthlessly good."
"Mr. Lubin played that wonderfully!"
Reflections from the Keyboard, (WQXR)
"Lubin's bold readings stand out: for their rhythmic resilience (listen to the spring with which the orchestra
launches K.467), for the way Lubin's imaginative articulation clarifies the phrasing (even the most conventional gestures
seem freshly minted), for their rhetorical poise."
