Synopsis

Amazon.com
Murray Perahia has recorded all of the Mozart piano concertos, and his effortlessly brilliant accounts can be recommended across the board. The playing is on the highest level--vibrant, unfailingly beautiful, wonderfully acute in its grasp of style and expression. Equally outstanding is the work of the English Chamber Orchestra, which Perahia leads from the keyboard. The recorded sound, while not as radiant as the music-making, is consistently good and well balanced from disc to disc. --Ted Libbey

CD Reviews

Passion and Joy in Abundance !
Avram | Someone, Somewhere, in Summertime | 12/28/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"To my ears, Perahia excells himself, and all the competitiors, on this disc. With this two highly contrasting Concertos he shows his fingers, his mind, his taste, his utmost musicality, but, above all, his soul, going from euforia to despair and back again with commitment and high artistry. Tempos are perfectly judged and all the feelings of joy and tragedy convincingly coveyed. For me, this is the best release of his Mozart cycle ! And one of the best of his whole output ! Do not miss it !"
Desert island CD
Daniel Rosenberg | Highland Park, IL United States | 06/13/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've had this recording almost since the moment it came out in 1990 and I honestly can say it's one of 10 CDs I'd take to a desert island. Perahia's playing is sublime, and the orchestra supports him well on my two very favorite Mozart concerti. There may be more modern recordings of these works now, but I daresay none with the same richness of performance this CD offers."
Exquisite Delight !!!

"This recording of Mozart Piano Concertos 19 & 23 is an absolute thing of beauty. Concerto No.23 in A Major, K.488 in the hands of Murray Perahia is splendid indeed. The English Chamber Orchestra is very good, and the digital recording is in the demonstration class. This concerto is a masterpiece of delicate beauty combined with inner vitality, and is probably my second favorite Mozart Piano Concerto (No.22 is number 1 for me). Mozart's woodwind writing, especially the clarinets in No.23, is incredible. (Mozart only used clarinets in 3 of the 27 concerti, nos. 22, 23 and 24.) Both concertos on this CD were written with very nice woodwind parts, and Concerto No.19 in F Major, K.459 is no exception. If you purchase no other Mozart Piano Concertos on CD, you MUST get this one. Very highly recommended by a BIG Mozart enthusiast!"
