Earlier this year Mr. Biss and the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra recorded Mozart Piano Concertos 21 and 22 live for an EMI Classics CD that was released on October 14. In his liner notes for the recording, Mr. Biss describes his feelings about Mozart's piano concertos: "So much of the greatest music acts as an escape … from reality; Mozart simply is reality … every affect and every effect." Of Mozart's piano concertos, he writes, "Mozart's music is generally filled with miracles but the frequency and variety of the miracles are perhaps at their greatest in the piano concerti, and the two on this disc are almost absurdly rich in inspired and diverse material."
