 First-rate concertos rival those of Mozart December 4, 2013 By Peter K. (Fort Collins, CO) See All My Reviews "I agree totally with the previous reviewer-these three concertos are every bit as lovely and enjoyable as anything Mozart wrote in the genre. A terrific CD of Kozeluch symphonies recorded by the Concerto Koln drew my attention to this composer, so I got these on the strength of the previous review and have listened to them over and over since I got them. They are melodious, inventive, and utterly charming. A great performance on a modern piano, too, by Tomas Dratva. Don't miss them!" Report Abuse
 I will go to the mat with this one. September 10, 2013 By Anthony G. (valley stream, NY) See All My Reviews "These concerti are so well written (and played) that I would place them on par with any compositions that Beethoven, Mozart, or Haydn wrote in the piano concerto form. Listen for yourself and see if you don't agree." Report Abuse
