Notes and Editorial Reviews

[One] of the best versions of these works we have had in recent years... [O]ne could say that in general Pollini is a shade more open and direct in his projection of the solo part than Perahia, so that there are times when he suggests a greater freshness of feeling... Pollini is robuster in the finales, more overtly brilliant... Comments such as these are inadequate to pin down the qualities of...magnificent artists at the top of their form...

-- Gramophone [1/1986]

 Favorite Mozart Piano Concerto recording December 11, 2012 By Frances A Smith (Inglewood, CA) See All My Reviews "I have bought this cd twice and then a third time as part of a Pollini Edition. I think this may be one of the most PERFECT performance/recording of these two Concerti ever. The Vienna Philharmonic and Pollini are one under Bohm's guidance the result is totally sublime!. PS There's also a DVD of this as well-with a DTS mix I believe." Report Abuse
