Notes and Editorial Reviews

As soon as one puts on Moravec’s CD of K503, one hears what one has been missing – this is a profound reading with many subtleties of touch and altogether a more weighty approach, especially evident in the slow movement. K491 is predictably dramatic. Marriner’s orchestra is excellent, especially the trumpets and timpani in K503’s opening movement.

-- HC Robbins Landon, BBC Music Magazine
