Review revised 11-3-2013
I have two versions of these concertos - these by Anthony Halstead and the Hanover Band, and the version performed by Ingrid Haebler. I also have the Opus 13 concertos by both, as well. Of the two, I prefer the Haebler versions. Halstead, as is noted in another review, is primarily a horn player and conductor and while he performs these concertos quite well, they don't quite reach the level of a world-class pianist such as Haebler, in my opinion. In the earlier version of my review I wrote, "Why he did not get a high-caliber pianist to perform these concertos is hard to fathom." Halstead replied in a comment, that he did indeed want another pianist to perform them, but due to budgetary restraints, he was contractually obligated to play them himself.
Upon, listening to these recording again, I find that I was too critical of Mr. Halstead's performance and have added another star to the review. The music, by the way, is wonderful. If you are not familiar with J.C. Bach, I urge you to get some of his recordings. If you like Mozart, you will definitely like J.C. Bach, and will probably hear why Mozart was heavily influenced by this fine composer.
