George & Joseph Paris

New York Philomusica and Robert Levin revisited the fine acoustics of their 1991 triumph in The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall in 1994 to perform rare music by Joseph Haydn and Mozart''s Piano Concerto No. 23. The record is dedicated to the late George Plimpton and his Paris Review on the occasion of its 50th Anniversary. He chaired New York Philomusica''s board.

Robert Levin has revealed an interpretive gift for Mozart imbued with "superb coherence and spirit, [neither of which belie] the modernity of the whole event," (Fanfare Magazine). With scholarly insight into the music of the 18th century, he reveals its unique beauty for our contemporary ears on a modern Steinway grand.

Joseph Haydn''s first of seven symphonies for a series in Paris is his Symphony No. 87. Two rarities follow: Partita (Divertimento) in F, https://www.tradebit.com:23 for six winds, and Scherzando in D, https://www.tradebit.com:35 for strings and winds. Few classic CDs will rival this for content or interpretive panache.
