I can’t remember when I have enjoyed a performance of a Mozart piano concerto as much as I did the dazzling, charming performance we heard last night by 20-year-old Michael Davidman, a student at the Curtis Institute of Music. We heard Davidman in a performance of Mozart’s Concerto No. 21 in C Major, K. 467. Davidman made it all look very easy, which, of course, it is not. Davidman’s technique is so beautifully controlled you were never aware of the inherent difficulties he was overcoming. This was music making au natural. He made the concerto sound fresh and spontaneous, he made the lyricism of the Andante movement sweet and seductive, and he performed the Presto final movement (with its spirited dialogs back and forth between the orchestra and piano) so magnificently it brought the audience to its feet with wild applause. Davidman rewarded the audience with one encore — his own arrangement, improvised on the spot, of the aria Vissi d’arte from Puccini’s Tosca. Peninsula Reviews by L
