Notes and Editorial Reviews

Malcom Bilson plays a Philip Belt Fortepiano, c 1977; Robert Levin plays a Philip Belt Fortepiano, c 1978.

"The superb Double Piano Concerto in a really splendid and vivacious performance. This always seems to me one of Mozart's wittiest works, in its dialogues and its interchanges . . . it works particularly well when the pianists are so well attuned, yet perceptibly different in style and in actual sound, as Bilson and Robert Levin are here. . . . Hearing the work on period instruments makes a considerable difference . . . because textures are so much lighter and clearer: when both instruments are playing at once it is far easier to hear exactly what they are playing. . . . The EBS, as usual, provide shapely and
Read more responsive, well disciplined playing." -- Stanley Sadie, Gramophone
