„The young Portuguese pianist Vasco Dantas was the soloist in the concert for piano and orchestra in E flat major KV 271, which was misnamed for 100 years as “Jeunehomme”. Mozart dedicated the work to the pianist Louise Victoire Jenamy, the daughter of the Viennese Dancer and ballet master Jean Georges Noverre. It is the last and most important of Mozart’s Salzburg piano concertos. He surprises with operatic effects and recitative passages in the piano. The second movement with its gloomy mood is Mozart’s first concert movement in a minor key The third movement of Rondeau Presto comes as a surprise, after a cadenza a slow minuet begins. Soloist and orchestra take turns, and the accompaniment of the soloist was great. Vasco Dantas delighted the audience with his interpretation, clearly showing the virtuoso and the soulful Passagen and thanked for the great applause with a composition from his Homeland.“
