Who knows what Mozart and Chopin might have played had they actually
come face to face in or around 1830. 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.
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.
