Pianist Ann-Marie McDermott has long dreamed of recording a Mozart album. As a result, she had very definite ideas of the sound she was looking for when she recorded her latest album, Mozart: Piano Concertos.
“I would say the most important quality I wanted to capture in recording Mozart was the living dynamic joy of this repertoire. I didn’t want it to sound like we had sat in a recording studio for three days and tried to make everything perfect. Of course that’s what we did. But I wanted to make sure we were able to capture the spontaneity of this music and the joy and the sparkle.”
