Warm and pastoral, dive into Honegger’s lush sonorities. Inspired by a holiday in the Swiss Alps, this music is close to Swiss-Australian conductor Elena Schwarz’s heart. Praised as his first mature piano concerto, Mozart’s fourteenth is delightfully unexpected, and sings with a distinctly operatic quality.
