Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 27
Elgar: Symphony No. 2
- Gramophone hailed McDermott’s 2013 disc of Mozart Concerti with Calder Quartet “exceptional on every count.”
- Piano Concerto No. 27, Mozart’s final work, is in a form he alone had developed to artistic and virtuosic heights – warm, mellow and serene.
- Edward Elgar called his second and final symphony, “the passionate pilgrimage of the soul.”
- Greeted with rapturous acclaim, it was performed more than 100 times in America and Europe in the year following its premiere in 1911.
