Hélène Grimaud: Mozart Piano Concertos KV 459 & 488

In May 2011 Hélène Grimaud played to highly acclaimed concerts with the Kammerorchester des Symphonieorchesters - she performed two late piano concertos by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. All musicians where so inspired and the musical work went so well that the pianist decided to ban the corrected concert records on a disc - her first Mozart-Album.
