These are quite superb performances of these concertos . K595 is just masterful . Many might find the Larghetto a little faster than they are used to but the pellucid tone and immense sensitivity of Pires' playing does not make it seem at all perfunctory .

At every turn there is delight - Abbado and the Orchestra Mozart accompany her sympathetically and with HIPP style but unlike their symphony recordings which I did find a little bloodless there is warmth too .

These are , in my opinion , superb renditions of these concertos - K466 is appropriately stormy and passionate without being romanticised . Just compare them with Uchida's recent Cleveland recordings which are a mannered disappointment in comparison.

Very strongly recommended .

It is difficult to justify yet another recording of these two Mozart Piano Concertos in such a crwoded field of fine performances but somehow Pires and Abbado brush that to one side with performances which sparkle from beginning to end. There is a strong feeling of empathy between conductor and soloist and Pires provides moments of rare beauty and exquisite poetry in her playing as wll as providing a freshness of interpretation for thes well known pieces.

Abraham Lincoln was not only the Sixteenth President of the United States of America. According to some, he was also a Vampire Slayer of no mean order. If so, his services are required. Resurrect him at once! An adversary worthy of his mettle is at hand.

No, I am not referring to the usual Period Practice Nosferatus - the likes of Jeggy, Rene Jacobs, Pale Bill Christie, Corporal Hogwood and what not: Abe - don't waste your Holy Water on these lightweights. No, a genuine Vamp lurks in the twilight of the recording studio: Count Claudio Abbado the Impaler.

The former chief conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic almost gave the game away in his recent recording of Fidelio. Check out the cover. That's a vamp. His fangs are nearly visible too. Add a cape and Abbado could walk imperiously onto the set of Twilight with Kirstin Stewart in train.

Athirst for sanguinary feasts, Abbado loves nothing more than to sing his fangs into Mozart and suck him dry until he is a pale and anaemic imitation of the composer whom we all adore. Under his tutelage, the so-called Orchestra Mozart is transformed from a dog-ordinary HIPster ensemble into a dog-ordinary chamber-orchestra playing at modern-day pitch (listen to their barnyard yapping at 1'09", 1'19" and 1'28" in the prelude of K 595 - the strings are also regularly monstered by the flautist and the phrasing at 2'37" in the first movement is hideous). Even if she is no Gilels, Pires is as musical as ever (she does not use a lot of pedal) but the innate vitality of these scores is drained away by the nefarious figure on the podium and his vassals. The recording is crystal clear enough albeit a tad recessed - which renders the bloodletting even more gruesome.
