 A Great Job by Both Mozart and Serkin. November 2, 2012 By Richard F. Buckley (Jefferson Hills, PA) See All My Reviews "I guess the 21st Piano Concerto by Mozart is everybody's favorite. Certainly the old chestnut ranks right up there with me! Serkin does a masterful job presenting it. His tempos are right on, and he does a particularly expert rendering of the 2nd movement, Andante. His playing of both concertos tugs at the heartstrings and brings out all the nuances that Mozart composed into his music. I believe this to be, if not the best, certainly one of the best among the many offerings of this music available. I suggest that you get it now while it is still available. You certainly will not regret it. Highly recommended." Report Abuse
