Recorded on a Blüthner Model 1 Concert Grand.

This recording is about the perception of Mozart after his death … and a very special commemoration for the Mozart Anniversary Year! The transcriptions and free fantasies that Petronel Malan has selected, trace Mozart reincarnated and transfigured through the ears, techniques, and compositional gifts of seven composers. Chronologically, they range from Hummel, a Mozart pupil, to Friedman, a twentieth-century keyboard virtuoso who survived World War II. Stylistically, the range is equally wide.

This is pianist and triple Grammy nominee Petronel Malan's second album for Hänssler Classic.
