Notes and Editorial Reviews

Vladimir and Dimitri Ashkenazy – an exceptional father-son relationship. Two exceptionally beautifully pieces, performed by two exceptional musicians – that is the idea behind this new paladino release. “I consider it to be the best [thing] that I have written in my life”, Mozart informed his father on 19 April 1784 after the premiere of his E Flat Major Quintet. An audience will probably never have such a definite opinion. Walter Kläy, as an example, has written the following about the clarinet concerto: "It is amongst the most beautiful music that Mozart composed and represents a degree of perfection that cannot be understood analytically." Vladimir Ashkenazy remains one of the most eminent musicians of the twentieth and Read more early twenty-first centuries. This album represents his 80th birthday recording. His son Dimitri has been jetting around the globe for over two decades performing his solo repertoire and playing alongside chamber ensembles. He is effectively following after his father’s legacy, while still blazing his own path. Read less
