Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gilels was a superb Mozartian. His playing is stylistically scrupulous, infused with lyricism while maintaining keen attention to detail. This all-Mozart program includes two performances of the composer's final piano concerto, the Concerto No.27 in B-flat; seldom has the slow movement been so ravishingly presented. For the Concerto for Two Pianos in E-Flat, Gilels is joined by his daughter Elena, with whom he often performed. Concerts are from 1979 to 19873, with The USSR State Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Vyacheslav Ovchinikov. 98 minutes, colour, all regions. Gilels was a superb Mozartian.
