Who knows what Mozart and Chopin might have played had they actually come face to face in or around 1830, if the former had not died so prematurely. They might both have improvised on a given theme, or played together on two pianos. And, given the custom of the day, each would very probably have performed something the other had written. Had that happened, the results might not have been that far removed from what we hear on this recording: a journey towards an imaginary encounter made reality by the exceptional vision and artistry of Josep Colom: with an improvised ornamentation laden with cross-references, an articulation always at pains not to blur this music’s cantabile nature, and a timbre that rather than maximising the polarity between the composers highlights a coherent and overarching narrative within which the two go hand in hand. The album leads us gradually from the dazzling luminosity of the first works towards a gathering, mystery-shrouded darkness, and it doesn’t seem to matter much who wrote which piece: along the way Mozart often, literally, turns into Chopin, and vice versa. Luca Chiantore, from the album’s liner notes.
