MARIA TIPO PLAYS CONCERTI



Maria Tipo plays concerti as she plays everything else, with care and the utmost attention to detail.

The two Mozart concerti offered hereunder are master classes in how to play this music.  It helps that Maria Tipo is accompanied in the D minor by the extraordinary Swiss conductor, Peter Maag, who's control over an orchestra is so like her own.  Both understand phrasing and its shaping to perfection.  And the cadenzas, oh my.

Listen to detail in the Beethoven 4th concerto.  Listen, in particular, to the ends of phrases and to the finish of isolated chords so often thrown away in an attempt to get through a piece.  There is not one note, one arpeggio, nor one chord struck that does not get her full attention.  Passages that you have heard played a thousand times will appear before you as entirely new.

Her Chopin, as I said on the Maria Tipo page, it is simply to die for.  Unfortunately, we have only one movement from the F minor concerto.  Ah, destino crudele!  Maria Tipo plays concerti so beautifully, and you permit us only these very few examples of her great art to enjoy.

For those of you who enjoy murder mysteries, here is my first with a strong musical polemic as background

Murder in the House of the Muse

And this is the more recently published second mystery in the series:
