Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Géza Anda was a thoughtful and scholarly Mozartian, and indeed, this ground-breaking series established standards for "modern" Mozart concerto interpretation, laying down a path that Brendel, Perahia, and to a lesser degree Schiff have pursued...Anda's authoritative performances remain highly competitive in an increasingly crowded field."

 Beautiful Mozart Concerti December 6, 2012 By Gail M. (Goleta, CA) See All My Reviews "These three Mozart piano concertos are given fine performances by Anda and the Mozart Camarata players. The style is very gentle, as Mozart was played half a century ago, but with plenty of care and beautiful phrasing in this case. The remastered sound is very detailed and perfect for this music. Makes good contrast when compared to modern period instrument performances. I found this disk very enjoyable and will return to it often." Report Abuse
