Notes and Editorial Reviews

...Mozartians to the manner born. Stylish and stylistic, artfully graceful, technically immaculate while never making a point of it, eloquent without rhetoric. There was a time when such pianists were relatively thin on the ground. Today, almost perplexingly, they abound. But who is Matthias Kirschnereit? On this evidence, he’s a Mozartian who can hold his own with anyone in the catalogue. Exemplary articulation, the subtlest melodic inflection, a wide but never self-indulgent tonal palette, a keen and elegant gift for characterisation – all are present and correct here, beautifully matched by orchestra and conductor.

Performance: 5 (out of 5), Sound: 5 (out of 5)
