"What is at once evident is the truth of Bernstein's 'love-affair' with the Vienna Philharmonic. The rapport in these performances is almost tangible and probably was visible. They phrase lovingly for him, they produce a soft and caressing piano string tone […] and the woodwind are mellifluous indeed. I like these interpretations. They are so musical and so tuned in to Mozart's genius." -- Gramophone
