Beautifully performed and recorded, Vladimir Ashkenazy's Mozart album is an SACD hybrid disc in 5.0 surround sound through which a spacious ambience opens.
There is probably no orchestra in the world better suited to this music than Pittsburgh - including Vienna and Berlin. Always a superb ensemble in German music, the orchestra shows playing that truly is in a class of its own.
The otherwise very quiet audience gives a rousing cheer at the end, and you will too for a fabulously recorded live performance that truly captures the freshness and daring of this work as few other versions have.
