Great performance of absolutely beautiful pieces

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD contains two very significant concertos of Mozart's. The first, K271 in E-flat, may well be considered his first adult concerto. In addition, it is the first concerto to introduce the piano before the orchestral ritornello, a concept to be utilzed by Beethoven in his 4th and 5th piano concertos as well as in Brahms' 2nd piano concerto. It also contains a wonderful and serious minor-key slow movement, reminding me of earlier opera seria. The G-major piano concerto is simply one of Mozart's most beautiful and perfect works, gay and happy from start to finish. It is a concerto whose every movement may be considered a masterpiece, significant in that many of Mozart's concertos have both strong and weak movements. Barenboim is a distinguished pianist and conductor. This CD is a must-have."
