This exceptional production, shot in 1988/1989 on 35 mm film and directed by George Moorse, Jean-Pierre Ponnelle and Klaas Rusticus, has been digitally remastered with the greatest care for high-quality audio and video restoration. The music of Mozart has been an essential driving force of Daniel Barenboim’s entire life. It remains central to his performing career both as a pianist and as a conductor. These illuminating performances of Mozart’s last eight great piano concertos admirably demonstrate
Read more Barenboim’s dictum that even when a true musician has already performed a familiar work hundreds of times, he or she ‘never accepts that the next note will be played the same way as it was played before’. Amongst the orchstra legendary musicians are playing: Toru Yasunaga and Leon Spierer, Daniel Stabrawa and Soloists Karl Leister (Clarinette), Gerd Seifert (Horn), Hanns-Joachim Westphal (Violin) and Karlheinz Zöller (Flute).

 beautifully performed April 26, 2014 By John Brauer (Fish Creek, WI) See All My Reviews "Daniel Barenboim shows his marvelous talents as pianist and conductor in this set of Mozart piano concertos. He clearly loves Mozart and so do the musicians of the Berlin Philharmonic. Some of the cadenzas are supplied by Barenboim himself. The recordings are all of high quality sound and quite high quality, but not high-definition, video. I found the camera work in the first concerto (no. 20) to be too stand-still and limited in views, but more camera angles are provided in the other concertos, thereby enhancing enjoyment. All eight concertos are beautifully performed." Report Abuse
