The Classical Piano Concerto: Leopold Kozeluch
Leopold Kozeluch: Piano Concerto No 6 in C major (23:33)
London Mozart Players / Howard Shelley, piano
Leopold Kozeluch—another composer-pianist trying to make his way in 1780s Vienna—has not been treated kindly by posterity, suffering that posthumous obscurity shared by so many of Mozart’s contemporaries. But his gracious, melodic style is much in evidence in these three piano concertos, given affectionate performances by pianist Howard Shelley.
