James Baillieu, piano

Mozart described the music of his Piano Concerto No. 12 in A K414, conceived for performance either with small orchestra or string quartet, as 'very brilliant, pleasing to the ear, and natural'.
James Baillieu moves from concerto soloist to chamber music partner in the second half, joining the Heath Quartet in Elgar's Piano Quintet, which received its first public performance at Wigmore Hall in May 1919.
