About this Album

After a season of touring together throughout the US in 1998, Richard Goode and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra offered the second installment in a series of Mozart piano concertos that reveals a partnership in its prime, featuring the concerto No. 9 in E-flat Major, K. 271, and No. 25 in C Major, K. 503. David Mermelstein of the New
York Times
describes the recording as "fresh, energetic Mozart certain to tickle the fancy of
anyone who delights in inspired music-making. Mr. Goode is an esteemed
artist, technically adept and intellectually rigorous …On this disk,
his efforts are a constant joy.”

The Goode/Orpheus Mozart project has received widespread international recognition since the release of their first Grammy-nominated CD in 1997. That disc received Gramophone magazine’s Record of the Month award in April 1997 and was voted Stereo Review’s Record of the Year. The New York Times described Goode’s performance of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 in D Minor, K. 466, on the inaugural disc as “temperamental and dramatic … a darkly Beethovenian interpretation of one of Mozart’s most Beethovenian works.” The third release in the series, a recording of the Mozart concertos Nos. 23 and 24, was described by The New Yorker as “intense performances of profound pieces.”
