Notes and Editorial Reviews

"In both concertos [Ashkenazy] takes a moment or two to settle...but there is steady illumination after that and the sovereign quality of the piano playing is a constant delight. Like all good Mozart players Ashkenazy knows how to make the piano sing, and he deploys a cantabile style like an ideally flexible voice." -- Stephen Plaistow, Gramophone [12/1985] "In both concertos [Ashkenazy] takes a moment or two to settle...but there is steady illumination after that and the sovereign quality of the piano playing is a constant delight.
