Two Sides Of Mozart With Pianist Alessio Bax's New CD
Two concerti plus variations make up this new Signum Classics disc
Pianist Alessio Bax is one of the most exciting young pianists today. His accolades include first prizes in the Leeds and Hamamatsu international piano competitions, as well as an Avery Fisher Career Grant. Alessio has just been named the 2013 recipient of the Andrew Wolf Chamber Music Award.
Bax's latest release includes two concertos by Mozart, plus a set of variations by the Salzburg master. Alessio talks about how he chose these two concerti, plus his friendship with conductor Simon Over. He also talks about how he ended up working with the Southbank Sinfonia, plus picking two very contrasting concertos.
