“Imogen Cooper’s strongly projected, stylistically sensitive performance stands up even alongside such distinguished modern versions. Anyone who wants this particular coupling will find Cooper and the Northern Sinfonia among the subtlest, liveliest and most probing of Mozartians” – Gramophone (Editor’s Choice)

“In the flood of Mozart recordings, this disc (…) stands out for its clarity and artistry” – The Sunday Telegraph

“The dialogue between keyboard and orchestra is highly developed and the quality of sound is superb” – The Independent on Sunday


This release inaugurated a new series with the Northern Sinfonia with the first commercial recording to be made at the spectacular Sage Gateshead, the landmark waterfront venue on Tyneside. In residence at the Sage Gateshead since its opening in 2004, the award-winning Northern Sinfonia’s dynamic approach to programmes, performances and recordings have earned them plaudits aplenty. The poetic pianist Imogen Cooper has a close association with Northern Sinfonia and the Sage Gateshead, having chosen the Steinway piano for the venue which she performs on this live recording.
