Imogen Cooper – A Breath of Fresh Air

Imogen Cooper’s performance of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 22 with the London Symphony Orchestra under Sir Mark Elder has received great reviews. The Guardian wrote “The final breath of fresh air came not from Strauss but Mozart, with Imogen Cooper’s performance of E flat piano concerto K482. This can be a staid work, but here it was a marvel of charm, wit and restraint. I can’t think when I’ve heard it better played”. This follows on from Imogen’s outstanding performances of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No 1 with the Cleveland Orchestra under Jane Glover last week, which was also very well received.
